Crisis (1946)

Ingmar Bergman directs Inga Landgré, Stig Olin and Marianne Löfgren in this dramatic tragedy where a young woman, raised by a foster parent, is attracted to the big city by her wayward birth mother.

A rather dry, dated melodrama with some astutely composed shots. Landgré catches the eye as the girl everyone wants to possess, Olin adds mystery as a pathetic, corrupt seducer. Fans of Ibsen will enjoy the most.
