Typically stark and reflective early film by Swedish auteur Ingmar Bergman, set on the waterfront of the bleak Gothenburg harbour. Berit Holm (Nine-Christine JÃ¶nsson) is a lonely and disturbed young woman who has worked as a prostitute and spent years in mental institutions. When she meets impoverished deckhand Goesta (Bengt Eklund), the two begin a romance, but Gosta struggles to overcome his puritanical attitude towards Berit's difficult past. A brooding and uncompromising tale of oppressive and destructive relationships, the film takes an unusual turn for the positive in the final scenes, presenting a 'happy ending' that nevertheless, in true Bergman style, leaves many problems unresolved.
