Bergman's first English language film, shot in England and Sweden, and his first film to involve a major American actor (Elliott Gould), working alongside Bergman regulars Max von Sydow and Bibi Andersson. A seemingly happy Swedish housewife and mother (Andersson), living in the United States, begins an adulterous affair with a foreign archaeologist (Gould) who is working near her home, an emotionally scarred survivor of the Holocaust.
