Based on Per Anders Fogelström's 1951 novel, Summer with Monika tells the story of a young couple, Harry (Lars Ekborg) and Monika (Harriet Andersson) stuck in lousy jobs in Stockholm. Harry is beset by parental responsibility--his mother died young and his father is ill--while Monika is fed up with her drunken, violent father. They escape in a motorboat and to spend a blissful summer on an island in the archipelago. Once Monika gets pregnant and they're forced to steal food, however, the idyll concludes and they return to Stockholm, where the relationship disintegrates. Visually ravishing, the film would have a deep impact on French New Wave cinema.
