Product Description

Ascerbic Ingmar Bergman comedy exposing the egotism and pretentiousness rife in the world of artists and critics. Cornelius (Jarl Kulle) is a self-important and highly opinionated critic who has been bribed by the egocentirc womaniser Felix, a famous cellist, to write his biography. But when Cornelius arrives at Felix's lavish home, he finds a string of women in the house, all determined to protect their maestro's privacy. The situation goes from frustrating to humiliating for Cornelius as he is dressed up in women's clothing, photographed in compromising positions, and bombarded with fireworks. He never does get to meet the elusive Felix, but finds out a lot about him from the women in the house, and, armed with this information, decides to blackmail Felix into performing a composition that he, Cornelius, has written.

Product Description

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 0 DVD: LANGUAGES: Swedish ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), English ( Subtitles ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Booklet, Filmographies, Interactive Menu, Remastered, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: What is so rare, and cherishable, as an Ingmar Bergman comedy? All These Women concerns the sexual misadventures of cello-playing Jarl Kulle. Amidst his many romantic pursuits, the egotistical Kulle endeavors to get his life story published, "bribing" a writer by agreeing to perform the latter's musical compositions. Bergman regulars Eva Dahlbeck, Harriet Andersson and Bibi Andersson costar in All These Women, while the screenplay was cowritten by another stalwart member of the director's stock company, Erland Josephson. Originally titled For Att Inte Talla om alla dessa Kvindor, All These Women is better known in English-speaking countries as Now About All These Women. ...All These Women ( För att inte tala om alla dessa kvinnor ) ( Now About These Women )

3.0 out of 5 stars Skeleton in Bergman's Closet? 2 Aug 2007
By HJ
Format:DVD
A genius musician has withdrawn to his beautiful house surrounded by his harem of groupies. Into the household enters the great critic determined to get the definitive story on the genius. The critic is variously seduced and humiliated by the women - the genius remaining off-screen.
At the height of his success as master of black & white doom & gloom Bergman made this, his first colour film and a satirical farce. Camp comedy was not what people expected or wanted from Bergman then (or now) and the film was a disastrous flop. When I first saw "All These Women" I thought it unbelievably bad, imagine Bergman directing a "Carry On" movie... However I've watched it at least a dozen times and it gets better with each viewing, it's amazingly detailed and, yes, now even makes me laugh.
It's a film about artists & critics, celebrity & sex. The idea that great art is produced by dubious people in dubious circumstances is an old theme in Bergman. The message here seems to be that whether an artist's work lives on into posterity depends not on the inherent value of the art but on the whims of the critic and fashion (though I think the film finally more sympathetic to the critic than the artist). The other theme is that artists, fans & critics are all driven by vanity.
I can't recommend this film - anyone who only knows Seventh Seal, Wild Strawberries, Persona etc should be cautious about buying the DVD - but if you have a taste for very arch humour then you might appreciate it. And of course it's a treat to see Bibi, Harriett et al in early 60s colour...

3.0 out of 5 stars not really my cup of tea 23 Aug 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
item arrived in perfect condition, would use seller again, thank you.

the humour in this film is mainly slapstick and I grew out of that when I was about six after getting bored with laurel and hardy. it is funny in places, but I don't really rate it. the seventh seal and the devil's eye were much funnier.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious 7 April 2008
By Room For A View VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
In All these Women Bergman/Josephson makes it quite clear what they think of genius, critics and biographers. But the treatment of the subject matter is handled with hilarious wit and slapstick humour. The female characters are charged with an intense sexuality and driving obsession for the unseen genius of the piece (an elusive cellist called Felix) which is paralleled with the critic Cornelius' determination to confront the maestro in order to further his musical aspirations. The action is fast paced and unrelenting making 80 minutes seem like half an hour. There are numerous scenes of comic excellence and, for me the most dazzling was the miasmic firework display! This film is yet another gem in Bergman's rich oeuvre - amazing art direction, cinematography, acting and profound insight.

1.0 out of 5 stars Even genius's have off days 1 Aug 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This one is a real stinker. It's almost embarrassing to watch. But for a lover of Bergman's work it's worth viewing, simply to see the worst of his output. It somehow makes him more human to see that he can fail so spectacularly.

3.0 out of 5 stars INGMAR BERGMAN, OPUS 26 16 July 2008
By Daniel S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
*** 1964. Written and directed by Ingmar Bergman. A music critic tries in vain to meet a famous cellist in order to complete the biography he's writing about him. Strange comedy of the Swedish master who was aiming at teasing the people who gravitated around himself. ALL THESE WOMEN was also the first film in color of Bergman and was photographed by Sven Nykvist. Let's admit it, I didn't laugh a lot and I almost fell asleep ten minutes before the end of the movie. Nevertheless, Ingmar Bergman's faithful fans will appreciate to see Eva Dahlbeck, Bibi Andersson and Harriet Andersson playing unusual parts. A DVD zone curiosities.

5.0 out of 5 stars A genius is those who makes a critic changes his mind! 9 Sep 2008
By Hiram Gomez Pardo - Published on Amazon.com
This lovable and caustic film is told through a narrative ellipsis with Felix a famous cellist, who rests forever in his grave, visited for the last time by every one of his lovers. Since this rhapsodic entrance, we will be conveyed four days ago his death in order to find out and be aware the prelude of the end.

"All these women" is the first film of this genial director released in colour. And certainly it couldn't be better appropriated. In this occasion Bergman presents us a marvellous and acidic gaze around the feminine universe around the figure of a famous cellist, loved and admired by seven women. This renowned artist lives isolated in a superb mansion and receives the visit of well known journalist (Cornelius) who pretends to write his biography.

With all these elements in stage we will witness a series of demolishing vignettes around the human condition, the way in which every one of his mistresses reacts, loves and thinks, until Cornelius finds out a letter that preludes the unerring finale.

Watching it carefully you will find interesting clues that will lead us to conclude that Truffaut's The man who loved the women" and Fellini "City of women" are indeed, distinguished and heartfelt homage to this singular comedy according the great theatrical tradition of the XVII century.

2.0 out of 5 stars All These Women Did Not Save It 16 April 2007
By Galina - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I never thought that I would have to say that but I did not like the Ingmar Bergman's film "All These Women". In spite the very pretty and delicate pink and blue cinematography and the presence of the charming and talented actresses, the movie was a mess of an attempt to create a comedy. Everything that was subtle, sensual, and charming in B/W "Smiles of a Summer Night" (1955) was missing here. First of all - the Jarl Kulle's performance as a music critic - biographer, Cornelius. Kulle was very effective and funny in "Smiles...", in "Women..." - he plays an irritating, annoying, and the worst - absolutely not funny (which is a crime for a comedy) character. If in "Smiles... the writing was a first class and sparkled, I got the impression that in "Women.." Bergman did not care or did not want to work on the script and was more interested in experimenting with colors and music. The movie looks and sounds fine - it is Bergman, after all, but that's the only redeeming qualities that I found.
