RB - "Uh Dad, you know your esteem for Bergman?"
RB's father - "Yeah"
RB - "Uh, well, you know, I get it now..."

The scene w/ Andersson describing the beach incident is erotic w/o any explicitness involved... That in and of itself should be a prime indicator of Bergman's mastery...

And the fissure of the film itself midway through - incredibly stark, unsettling, but all the more effective for it...

I'll get back to Beckinsale in a minute...
