A movie director is approached by his old math teacher with a great movie idea: the Devil declares that the Earth is hell. The director rejects the idea, but subsequent events in the life of a writer, a friend of the director's, and a young prostitute he loves seem to prove the math teacher's idea.

" Ingmar Bergman tackles the hard issues as this is absolutely not a film for depressed pregnant women or parents as it includes both child murder and suicide. Great photography from Sven Nykvist make this a fantastic black and white film and I love the experimental camera style. It is fascinating to compare a movie from liberal Sweden in 1949 to censor-controlled USA and their hard control over films at that time which would never have passed this film at that time."
