Jan-Erik Widgren is a high-school senior. His Latin teacher, Caligula, is feared by everybody, both teachers and students. Widgren falls in love with Berta, who works in a tobacco store. She tells him that she is harassed by a mean, sadistic man, but does not tell him that it is Caligula himself.


Masterpiece.5/5 Great script(Ingmar Bergman)superb direction(Alf Sjöberg)and if impossible a better cinematography(Martin Bodin). Stig Järrel is doing one of the best swedish roles I have ever seen.And the other cast is great to(specially Alf Kjellin). Ingmar Bergman said to a Swedish newspaper before the film came out that his high-school was a hell like this. RATING: 5/5-a master work
