A movie he appreciated dearly. Even though he is sometimes perceived as a stern author, Bergman always loved both the comical power and the poesy of the burlesque cinema, of which Tati was an extraordinary representative. Bergman himself experienced the genre in All these women (För att inte tala om alla dessa kvinnor). In 1947, when The Big Day was released, Bergman directed his third film L'éternel Mirage (Skepp till India land). He was only 29 years old.
