- It Rains on Our Love review by sb
AKA It Rains on our Love Bergman's second film and after the rather frothy Chaos his first when you can see his main themes develop.
Kollberg plays Maggie desperate to get the last train out of town and litterly bumps into David (Malmsten). She misses the train and the pair find themselves in the empty station.
He has enough money for a room in a local hostel and a passionate affair begins
Next morning they are on the road and broke - they find a cottage and break in but the landlord finds them and calls the police but takes pity on their story (David is not long out of prison) and agrees they can stay paying him rent and arranges for David to get a job.
Things are looking up but Maggie tells David she is with child - but has been before they met...he rejects her but they reconcile.
Meanwhile the landlord gets them to sign a new contract but he seems more sinister this time and his motives are suspect but the couple are innocent and sign which brings them into conflict with the authorities.
Its a really good story with strong central performances (both would become Bergman regulars) and a hint that events are being manipulated by higher powers - not vintage Bergman but worth adding - 4/5
