Ingmar Bergman’s Cinema: A Centennial
A Lesson in Love (En lektion i kärlek)
Friday, August 31, 2018:
One of Ingmar Bergman’s most satisfying marital comedies, A Lesson in Love stars the droll and sparkling duo of Eva Dahlbeck and Gunnar Björnstrand as Marianne and David Erneman, a couple deep into their married years and seeking fresh pastures. David, a gynecologist, falls for one of his patients (Yvonne Lombard), while Marianne flounces off to Copenhagen to renew her fling with a sculptor (Åke Grönberg).
Deftly interspersing scenes of farce with interludes of tranquil reflection, A Lesson in Love serves as a cocktail before the full-blown comic brilliance of Smiles of a Summer Night, which screens on Saturday, September 1.
“In my opinion, Ingmar Bergman has made a delightful film. It is not one for the avant-garde, nor for those looking for literary depth. It is an 'ordinary' film, yet ordinary films like this are themselves unusual.” —Stockholms-Tidningen
