Featuring a raft of wonderful performances, Bergman’s witty period sex farce – the film that brought the Swedish master to the attention of the world‘s film lovers – depicts the chaos that ensues when a weekend-long country house party, populated by duplicitous society types, places the various wives and lovers of its rakish menfolk in the same vicinity.
