A brother, Earland Josephson, returns to his family home to visit his sister in the Italian countryside. He brings with him his young male lover. In the house with the sister are two women, one of whom, Mariangela Melato, takes care of the farm. The two women are friends and lovers since childhood and one senses that Melato's relationship is shadowed by the relationship she had with her mother shown through wonderful flashbacks. The brother also has wonderful memories of his and his sister's childhood in that same house with their father who was a magician. Following a night out at a lovely restaurant in the woods, other memories of the past are aroused in the Brother. The next day they all plan to drive to Venice where his sister sang opera in her youth for a holiday. Fate intervenes.

Characters engulfed by their pasts have to reach an understanding that keeps them together. The death of Gertrud seems to provide such a possibility. Bergman's portrayal of the psychological tension is something that reminds one of his masterpieces later but here they remain raw. Among all these I liked the scene were we experience the pain that Gertrud goes through and how it touches other major characters of the movie.
