  • SMILES OF A SUMMER NIGHT is an enchanting comedy of manners with a satirical edge. Set on a country estate at the turn of the century, it features eight people, including an actress, a sophisticated aristocratic couple, a lawyer and his virginal wife, and a spirited young maid who, during the course of one evening, change partners several times and engage in multiple romantic trysts. Full of subtle eroticism and wit, Ingmar Bergman's romance proposes that falling in love (or lust) beyond the parameters of social convention is not only unavoidable at times but it might even be the key to personal happiness.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...[Bergman's] funniest work -- and also one of his best....A rare comedy. It plays with both the romping feelings of romance and the impossibility of idealized, perfect love with the ease of flirtation..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "The movie that put Ingmar Bergman on the map..."
    USA Today

    "SMILES is clearly the work of a master -- observant, complex, and richly entertaining."

    "[A]n internationally revered delight about dueling love affairs at a summer estate."
    USA Today
