Directed by Ingmar Bergman
(1949) Retired teacher brings former pupil Hasse Ekman a cool idea for a film – human life is an inferno – and journalist friend Birger Malmsten begins his own reminiscence, a film-within-a-film, of his marital battles, and his involvement with a doomed prostitute and her sleazy pimp. Bergman’s first auteur work. DCP restoration courtesy Swedish Film Institute. Approx. 80 min.
