Summary

The Swedish Intermezzo was the film that brought Ingrid Bergman to the attention of Hollywood. Bergman plays a fresh-faced music student who falls in love with Gosta Ekman, a very-much-married violin virtuoso. Ekman leaves his wife to live with Bergman and to tour with her on the concert circuit. His daughter's near-fatal accident awakens Ekman to his familial responsibilities. Streamlined from 88 minutes to 70, the plot of Intermezzo was transferred intact to the 1939 American version of the same name, which served as Bergman's Hollywood debut. To avoid confusion, the original Intermezzo was retitled Interlude for its U.S. distribution. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
