During a dress rehearsal of "Swan Lake," Marie (Maj-Britt Nilsson), a ballerina, receives a diary she had written many years before, when she was involved in a romance with Henrik (Birger Malmsten), a young student. While she reads the diary, the film slips into three flashbacks, showing
the courtship and love affair between the two. One of Bergman's favorites among his own films, this movie features a complex episodic structure and makes fine use of lighting to create an effective ambience for the flashback sequences. (In Swedish; English subtitles.)
