    Watching this film is like staying in a 1950’s bed and breakfast in Scunthorpe. No hot water. Fried bread for breakfast and locked out after 10 at night, Possibly the worst film ever made.

    Not really a good film, but it kept me entertained in it’s good-spirited slovenliness and so bad it’s fun way. It was also a treat seeing a film actually shot on location in Gotland (and, I think the Bergman Island itself, Fårö, and featuring Bergman leading man (of the pre-Max Von Sydow era), Birger Malmsten, in a rare English-language performance.
