Musik i Mörker (Music in Darkness)

Posted by martinteller on December 9, 2006

Bergman’s 4th film, and the earliest I’ve seen.  Nothing here is going to bowl you over — it’s practically a Hollywood drama, everyone wears their emotions on their sleeves and there’s not a hint of subtlety or insight.  The score is cheesy and overbearing, it’s hard to believe he wanted it that way.  It does look nice, though.  Lots of shadows and contrast, tracking shots, dramatic angles.  The brief “hell” sequence early in the film is perhaps the most surreal thing Bergman’s ever done.  Rating: 6
