Sawdust and Tinsel

Ingmar Bergman presents the battle of the sexes as a ramshackle, grotesque carnival in one of his most vivid early works. A twisted relationship develops between a turn-of-the-century circus owner (Ake Gronberg) and his performer girlfriend (Harriet Andersson). Made before his international hits 'Smiles of a Summer Night' and 'The Seventh Seal' the film was originally vilified by critics, but with time has earned a reputation as one of Bergman's first important works.
