Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A minor but mostly agreeable picture, which finds Bergman gearing up for his altogether more resonant exercise in wise comedy, Smiles of a Summer Night."

"Made with Bergman's usual flair for striking visuals and intelligent characterisation, this is rewarding dissection of middle-aged love that manages to be incisive, compassionate and hopeful."
‑ Jon Fortgang, Film4
"Even though it came early in the snowballing Bergman career, it reveals certain sparkling characteristics that have been striking in Mr. Bergman's themes and style."

"Ingmar Bergman, of course, is best known for his dark, moody dramas, but this early comedy shows the director's seldom-seen playful side."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"[Bergman's] first comedy... follows a long-married couple's rocky affairs and recalls the better-known Smiles Of A Summer Night."
