    An early Ingrid Bergman film, Intermezzo might make an intriguing double-feature with her and Ingmar Bergman's Autumn Sonata in which she plays an older pianist. Here, she's at the start of her career, for a while at least burying her own ambitions to accompany (musically and romantically) an older violinist. Gösta Ekman isn't just an older man, he also looks like he stepped out of a silent film, which may or may not have been done on purpose, but it works for the film. While this plot is truthful - the danger of dating a younger, let's say unfinished, person is that their ambitions will eventually call them away - my favorite element is the father-daughter relationship between Ekman and little Britt Hagman (Ann-Marie). She's very good, and I like this look into a musical family. Therein lies the tragedy of the unfaithful man, more so than with the long-suffering wife who is relatively speaking uninteresting in this drama, as his interests shift to the beautiful piano teacher rather than his adorable little girl, and then leaves the family. The finale teeters on the edge of wet melodrama, but I felt my heart thumping loudly during those scenes, so I guess it did its work! 1 year 4 months ago
