SMILES OF A SUMMER NIGHT

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 27 11:30 AM MONDAY, OCTOBER 29 7 PM THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1 9 PM “Bergman's first major success…this enchanting comedy of manners assembles a team of couples, ex-couples and would-be couples, and puts them through their paces in a game of love at a country house party during one heady midsummer weekend in 1900. Ruthless towards its characters' amorous pretensions, but extending a kind of ironic tenderness when they get hoist with their own petards, it is a wonderfully funny, genuinely erotic, and quite superbly acted rondo of love. Dig too deeply and it disintegrates, but its facade - decked out in elegant turn-of-the-century settings and costumes - has a magical, shimmering beauty.” (Tom Milne, TimeOut) 1955 Ingmar Bergman 1.33:1 B&W DCP 108 min. In Swedish with English subtitles.
