After The Rehearsal Film Poster


In this psychological romantic drama from Ingmar Bergman, theatre director Henrik Volger (Erland Josephson) is struggling to stage a play by August Strindberg. Staying behind after rehearsals to work, Henrik talks with aspiring actress Anna (Lena Olin), who he has just cast in the production. It transpires that Henrik was once involved with her late mother, Rakel (Ingrid Thulin), and Anna's visit causes him to reminisce about their doomed relationship, and about the nature of his own closed-off emotional state.
