“Bergman himself admitted the strong influence of Rossellini and Neo-Realism on this dockside drama, filmed partly on authentic Gothenburg locations. A striking opening sees heroine Jönsson saved from drowning herself, before flashbacks fill out her desperate plight… After spending the night with her and sparking the embers of a human connection, merchant seaman Eklund stumbles towards an attuned responsibility which might allow him to accept her for all her faults…solid performances and straightforward handling make Bergman's fourth feature the most fully achieved, though hardly most characteristic, of his fledgling film career to that point.” (TimeOut London)
