(Musik i mörker)
Ingmar Bergman / SWE, 1948
Swedish version / Czech and English subtitles, 85 min
A blind pianist is the victim of a military accident. After failing to gain admission to the musical academy in Stockholm he is forced to eke out a drab existence in a cheap cafe. But life takes on a brighter aspect when a former acquaintance realises that she loves him. The film´s underlying romantic theme is ably pointed up in Dagmar Edqvist’s adaptation for the screen from her own book. Birger Malmsten shows great skill in portraying the sightless musician.
