Djävulens öga
Movie: Djävulens öga(1960)[tt0053772] The devil has a stye in his eye, caused by the purity of a vicar's daughter. To get rid of it, he sends Don Juan up from hell to seduce the 20 year old Britt-Marie and to rob her of her virginity and her belief in love. She however can resist him and things get even turned around when Don Juan falls in love with her. The fact that he feels love for the first time now, makes him even less attractive to her and Don Juan returns to hell. Written byLeon Wolters <wolters@strw.LeidenUniv.nl>

The screenplay is the most interesting element of this film: it presents an original tale with some bits of humour along the way. It is a bit too verbose and talkative now and again, which is very distracting from what is happening on screen, but it very amusing whenever it is amusing. The movie is filmed in a play-like fashion, separated into three acts, and narrated in part. This makes the film feel more like a play, and it does limit Bergman to how much skill he can show as a director. There are still nevertheless some well set up shots, in particular in relation to framing, lightness and darkness. The ending is a tad weak, but the bulk of the film is oddly engaging - atypical and yet still admirable Bergman.
