Ingmar Bergman directs Ingrid Bergman, Liv Ullmann and Lena Nyman in this Swedish drama about a quiet, near suicidal daughter confronting her feckless yet domineering mother when she visits her country home for a rare stay.
More bloody miserablism. Well acted though… especially the still elegant and glamorous Ingrid Bergman in her challenging swansong. Some of the formal experimentation I liked (the background character of the husband’s third person introduction to our lead), some I hated (endless shots of a screaming disabled woman being ignored).
