Kvinnodröm (Dreams) (Journey Into Autumn)
Not even Ingmar Bergman was prone to discuss his obscure 1955 production Dreams. While on vacation, photo agency owner Susanne (Eva Dahlbeck) hopes to rendezvous with her married lover. The man's wife puts the kibosh on this, whereupon Susanne enters into an affair with diplomat Sanderby Gunnar Bjornstrand. This liaison ends unhappily, leaving her sadder and wiser at vacation's end. So annoyingly confusing is Dreams that at times it resembles a Woody Allen parody of Bergman, rather than the genuine article. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It is not a major concept he is dramatizing, and it lacks the hallmarks of imagination, expressive symbolism and poetic nuances of some of the truly memorable films that followed Dreams."
‑ A.H. Weiler, New York Times
"Scattered moments of rawness aside, the master of the spiritual crisis directs an unbalanced and uncharacteristically unconvincing melodrama."
‑ Jon Fortgang, Film4
"Bergman's day-long, we-the-career-women saga places the shallow narcissism of youth along with the melancholy yearning of middle-age, or hope versus regret."
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"This is not one of Ingmar Bergman's greats, but is a compelling film all the same."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Lacks the gravitas of the director's more powerful latter psychological dramas but, nevertheless, shows-off his technical skills."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
