Feature Film, 1948


Directed by Gustaf Molander, based on a short story and fragments by Ingmar Bergman.

"Ingmar Bergman is quite simply the only person in Swedish cinema capable of writing erotic dialogue."
Nils Beyer in Morgontidningen

About the film

In February 1948 Ingmar Bergman sold a pitch entitled "The Trumpeter and Our Lord" to Svensk Filmindustri, promising to develop a screenplay that spring. However, various circumstances prevented him from fulfilling this obligation in its entirety. The task was entrusted instead to Gösta Stevens and Gustaf Molander, who began shooting the film on 27 May 1948, the same day that a certain director contracted to SF, Ingmar Bergman, started shooting Harbour City.

The film was Sweden's contribution to the Venice Biennale in 1949. As was the case with Woman without a Face, Eve was widely received as a film by Bergman rather than Molander.
