Intermezzo Review

Ingrid Bergman's screen debut is about the only memorable moment in this edition of the much-remade Intermezzo, a typically repressed Swedish love triangle about an older violinist who falls out of love with his wife and in love with the nubile gal (Bergman) teaching his child to play piano. Dramatically poor in its lighting, direction, and editing, the movie is barely tolerable when Bergman is off screen. And alas, even when she's on, you'll be too busy reading subtitles to notice her much.
