Watch Summer with Monika (1953)

In Stockholm, nineteen year old Harry Lund and eighteen year old Monika Eriksson enter into a passionate relationship quickly after their formal meeting. They both live with their respective parents - Harry's mother who died about ten years ago, while his father is in ill health - and both work entry level blue collar jobs, Harry as a packing clerk for a china/glass company, it a job he is not very good at due not being very careful around the breakables, and Monika as a general clerk at a greengrocer. While Harry is at least committed to employment which he sees as a step to responsible adulthood, Monika wants to escape what she considers her terrible life, which includes getting away both from her parents and her job. Easily falling into helping Monika over all else, Harry decides to "escape" their respective lives with her. The primary question then becomes if there is a long term future for the pair as Monika's first priority is her own happiness, which at this stage of her life primarily means having fun, which may not be the easiest thing to accomplish on Harry's dime, especially as his money begins to run out....

Summer with Monika is one of my favorite movie from year 1953. There are many movie productions that can cause shivers, or make your heart beat faster, but it's the [tytul] that deserve the most to be available to watch online for free. It’s not surprising that Ingmar Bergman can produce a good film from nothing. Summer with Monika filled me with difficult to explain energy got me so immersed in it. It can be interpreted in many ways. I'm not a true fan of Drama, but I'm like that too!. Last time I bought this movie in a blu-ray quality, so I decided to upload the full movie here.... Show more
