Only a year after experiencing his first taste of studio success with Music in Darkness, Ingmar Bergman set about making an even more challenging picture and was forced to work with a massively reduced budget. Based in and around a movie studio this experimental and intriguing picture is essentially a film within a film. A director is told by one of his old professors that the world is in the dominion of the devil, and decides to make the claim the subject of his latest picture. He then passes the idea onto a young journalist who is coincidently going through his own personal hell with his prostitute girlfriend and her violent pimp. This is a fascinating film, not only for its thematic tussle between the attraction of suicide and the comfort of faith, but for its many stylistic endeavors.
