Intermezzo

Intermezzo is poignant, full of pathos, and, above all, shows in Ingrid Bergman, a talented, beautiful actress. Although Bergman's beauty and splendid characterization as Anita Hoffman, the ill-fated third person in the triangle, is outstanding, Gosta Ekman, Sweden's veteran of the screen, is not far behind as the violin master, Holder Brandt.

Intermezzo is poignant, full of pathos, and, above all, shows in Ingrid Bergman, a talented, beautiful actress. Although Bergman’s beauty and splendid characterization as Anita Hoffman, the ill-fated third person in the triangle, is outstanding, Gosta Ekman, Sweden’s veteran of the screen, is not far behind as the violin master, Holder Brandt.

It is through her teaching of piano to Ann-Marie (Britt Hagman), tiny daughter of Brandt, that Anita and the violin player meet. Their friendship, first a mutual professional admiration, ripens to love. Brandt then forsakes his wife and children, leaving on a concert tour, with Anita as his accompanyist.

Brandt establishes new heights to his concert fame but family ties call to Brandt. Finally, the urge to see his small daughter is too much.

Other convincing performances are given by Inga Tidblad, as the wife, Erik Berglund as an impresario, and Hans Ekman, as the son.
