"Bergman's second film, a romantic drama set in post-war Sweden, remains a solid example of the auteur's early work. Maggi and David, two outsiders with trouble pasts, meet by chance at a railway station and fall in love. They decide to start a new life together, but their happiness comes under threat from a series of misfortunes and set backs. Distinguished by excellent performances and assured direction, 'It rains on our love' is an affecting portrait of the bond between two people and a damning critique of the closed-mindedness of the period."--Container
