A world-renowned violinist falls for his daughter’s piano teacher and invites her to accompany him in his next concert tour. Although Anita’s feelings for Brandt are deep and true, she renounces him – an affair would damage Brandt’s career and family life. Upon returning to his wife and children, Brandt realizes that his infatuation with Anita was just an intermezzo in his life.
This emotionally nuanced drama by Gustaf Molander became the starting point of Ingrid Bergman’s Hollywood career – three years later she reprised the role of Anita in the Hollywood remake of the film, produced by David O. Selznick.
