Intermezzo is an American remake of a picture turned out three years earlier in Sweden which Gustav Molander directed, with Ingrid Bergman in the femme lead.

Story structure [based on original by Molander and Gosta Stevens] is a love triangle involving a famed concert violinist and a young girl pianist, but the romance lacks persuasiveness.

Leslie Howard, who functions as star and associate producer, is eclipsed by Bergman. Latter is beautiful, talented and convincing, providing an arresting performance and a warm personality that introduces a new stellar asset to Hollywood. She has charm, sincerity and an infectious vivaciousness.

Picture unwinds at a leisurely pace, without theatrics of too great intensity in the romantic passages.

1939: Nomination: Best Score
