The ultimate in coffee table weepies, with Howard's unhappily married violinist and Bergman's sympathetic piano teacher making sweet music together during a Riviera idyll, ended when paternal longings drag him reluctantly home and the child has a convenient accident to effect marital reconciliation. Making her radiant Hollywood debut in a part she had played in Sweden, Bergman almost makes you believe the tosh, but Howard (dubbed on violin by Jascha Heifetz) comes on like a smarmy elocution teacher, enunciating atrocious dialogue full of arch emptinesses.
