SMILES OF A SUMMER NIGHT

Smiles of a Summer Night / Sommarnattens leende (1955) dir Ingmar Bergman w/Gunnar Bjornstrand, Ulla Jacobsson, Harriet Andersson [108 min; 35mm; in Swedish with English subtitles]
In turn-of-the-century Sweden, four men and four women attempt to navigate the laws of attraction. During a weekend in the country, the women collude to force the men’s hands in matters of the heart, exposing their pretensions and insecurities along the way. Chock-full of flirtatious propositions and sharp witticisms, SMILES OF A SUMMER NIGHT is one of cinema’s great erotic comedies. – The Criterion Collection

Clip:
