In this episode, I talk about Ingmar Bergman’s 1951 film “Summer Interlude.” It’s about Marie, a young ballet dancer who receives the diary of a young man with whom she had a passionate love affair in her teens. The diary plunges her back into memories of their brief and tragic romance. I explore themes of love, loss, mourning one’s childhood, how we build up walls to keep out pain, and much more.
