It Rains on Our Love (Swedish: Det regnar på vår kärlek) is a 1946 Swedish drama film directed by Ingmar Bergman. The screenplay was written by Herbert Grevenius and Bergman, based on the Norwegian play Bra Mennesker (Good People) by Oskar Braaten.[1] It Rains on Our Love is the first film directed by Bergman to include actor Gunnar Björnstrand in a credited role (he also had a credited role in Bergman's screenwriting debut Torment (1944)). Björnstrand would go on to act in nearly twenty of Bergman's films.


David Lindell (Birger Malmsten) and Maggi (Barbro Kollberg) are not lucky. David landed in prison, but now wants to start a new life. Maggi aimed to be an actress, but got pregnant during a chance encounter and has now fled to a provincial town to give herself a second chance. The lovers represent everything the straitlaced society rejects. Yet even when people take advantage of them, when the couple are accused of theft, when they are thrown out of their apartment – at least they seem to have a guardian angel, who appears in the unlikely form of the “Man with the Umbrella”.
