A visit to Bertha prompts a confrontation with his school master which leads to the boy making strong indictments against the master and the master becoming increasingly vindictive. Set at the height of World War 2 the character of Caligula was based hevaily upon Heinrich Himmler and portrays him as a character of weakness using cruelty to cover his shortcomings. The harsh pessimism and darkly surreal visuals offer a glimpse into the brilliance that Bergman would show in his later works.
