Admission UCB Students: 50 cents
Others: Regular Viewing Member ticket prices

A Bergman “comedy.” Four dissatisfied wives are waiting at a lakeside resort for their husbands to arrive. Three of them describe their marriages and affairs in long flashbacks. “Film comedy demands a perfect sense of rhythm... the director of comedy must be able to surprise and disarm the spectator. Bergman masters this art in Secrets of Women, without, however, being far from the tragic element which, after all, is the foundation and strength of his art” (Jorn Donner).
