Summer with Monika

Ingmar Bergman's 1953 feature stars Harriet Andersson as a self-centered adolescent temptress who manages a brief romantic interlude with an errand boy (Lars Ekborg) before walking out in boredom, leaving him to care for their illegitimate child. This, the first Bergman feature to get worldwide art-house distribution, represented a new direction for Bergman in his detailed treatment of a youthful character. His first film with Andersson shows a developing ability to probe the psychology of a rich, vital woman without losing his objectivity. Minor but worth seeing. In Swedish with subtitles.
