To Joy (Swedish: Till glädje) is a 1950 Swedish film directed by Ingmar Bergman about a young married couple who play together in a Swedish orchestra.


Stig and Martha are two violinists playing in the orchestra directed by Sönderby. They wed, but Stig's ambition is overwhelming and his ego, oversized. The difficulties the couple encounters in its day-to-day life, as well as Stig's inability to accept the career of a solist embitter the man. He starts seeing Mikael Bro, an old swinger friend, and his wife Nelly, who form a sulfurous couple.
