    "É impossível proteger um ser humano de qualquer tipo de sofrimento, e é isso que nos põe exaustos" "E a noite sorriu uma terceira vez" Cinemateca 2 Jul. 2019

  4. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Smiles of a Summer Night

    I had a lot of fun with the sharp, witty dialogues of this midsummer night comedy. And Erik Nordgren delivered one of his most pointed scores.

  5. Laura G.'s rating of the film Smiles of a Summer Night

    "I'm tired of people. That does not prevent me from loving them".

  6. Basqueville's rating of the film Smiles of a Summer Night

    Pas un des meilleurs Bergman, mais un film charmant.

  7. Andhika Eka Buana's rating of the film Smiles of a Summer Night

    To think that this adorable little rom-com (due to its glaring success) were the one that paved way to films like PERSONA, FANNY & ALEXANDER, and THE SEVENTH SEAL....Rom-com is dope.

  8. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Smiles of a Summer Night

    There are some incredible scenes here that deserve to stay in film history: the Russian roulette, Eva Dahlbeck and her two lovers in the bedroom, the last dinner and the retractable bed of course. I love the moment when comedy/drama meets the fantasy genre during the wine tasting scene. Strongly recommended.

  9. Jason's rating of the film Smiles of a Summer Night

    Not only a comedy, but a comedy with all the classical hallmarks of comedy, SMILES OF A SUMMER NIGHT nonetheless becomes, due to its overall seriousness, a film of disarmingly profound nobility. It is so outrageously great that it is practically harmful. Though its wisdom is a kind of encompassing, paternalistic wisdom, much of the considerable humour of this lively chiaroscuro masterpiece is based in emasculation.

  10. jhubbs's rating of the film Smiles of a Summer Night

    Hilarious romance, with slightly serious undertones that touch on Bergman favorites such as faith, desire, restraint, and pretention. The base, lusty maid and stableman that close the film seem to embrace an earthy, honest humanism that the bourgeoisie only brush through their formal trappings. Music and effects overdone & some makeup is questionable. Dinner scene & landscapes gorgeous. Wonderful acting, esp Dahlbeck

  11. Jim's rating of the film Smiles of a Summer Night

    ★★★ / DCP/ Bergman’s amusing sex farce has a brooding underbelly populated with unhappy devious characters. For me the first half lulls, while the second, as the characters arrive at the estate brims with inventive charm, such as the sexual frenzy of the priest in training, the foiled suicide, Harriet Anderson’s lusty Petra. A rare, successful venture into comedy for Bergman.

  12. Emrys's rating of the film Smiles of a Summer Night

    Enjoyed this last night at the summer solstice. Articulated well in a 1961 review (Pauline Kael), “Boudoir farce becomes lyric poetry. The film becomes an elegy to transient love: a gust of wind and the whole vision may drift away.” Light and playful.

  13. VincentVendetta's rating of the film Smiles of a Summer Night

    It may not be Bergman's best film, but it is without a doubt his most entertaining.

  14. Chearth's rating of the film Smiles of a Summer Night

  15. lou.'s rating of the film Smiles of a Summer Night

    A delightful program dedicated to Bergman continues. [let me just add that the Italian dubbing is sometimes interrupted by the v.o. dialogues in Swedish]

  16. VinceCi's rating of the film Smiles of a Summer Night

    Ti giuro di sposarti sulla cosa più preziosa che ho...la mia libertà

  17. Quattro's rating of the film Smiles of a Summer Night

    A flawless comedy, perfectly written, staged and performed. At the same time light and bitter, every character is lovable despite (and because of) his or her own flaws; at the end of the game, it feels like everything piece's gone in its right place. Fun, smart, sweet. A delight.

  18. mubianer's rating of the film Smiles of a Summer Night

    35mm. David Thomson: "The most special effect in movies is always the human face when its mind is being changed." Bergman understood this. Delightful film, both sad and funny! Great re-watch for me.

  19. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film Smiles of a Summer Night

    If The Virgin Spring is Bergman’s darkest, Smiles is his most cynically comical and overall most entertaining. The blunt upper class humor and excellent set of characters made it Bergman’s first big international success. So much sexual tension from everyone to everyone throughout the entire thing.

  20. dionysus67's rating of the film Smiles of a Summer Night

    One of those films that insert a thin layer of existential agony into a wonderful comedy-of-manners depiction of gender relations. The critique of the patriarchal separate spheres model (unfifferentiated females vs differentiated males) is effected gently, humorously and in full control of the charming flaws of human (clowns) in pursuit of passions, settling for a giggling pragmatism over haughy dreams. Brilliant!

  21. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film Smiles of a Summer Night

  22. f-nanda's rating of the film Smiles of a Summer Night

    As always in a Bergman's film the dialogues and scenes are insanely beautiful but I didn't engaged as much. "And the summer night smiled for the third time." As lovely as is depressing.

  23. Mario Gaborović's rating of the film Smiles of a Summer Night

    I must be handicapped for Lubitsch-kinda humor.

  24. Michael Convery's rating of the film Smiles of a Summer Night

    Bergman could make comic masterpieces too? IT'S NOT FAIR!!!
