Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"On balance, his strongest offering of the 1940s."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"Great films are just around the corner for Bergman."

‑ Jon Fortgang, Film4
"One of the more interesting entries in Ingmar Bergman's groping-around gestation period."
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
