Certificate 18

We screen the complete (and superior) original TV version of Bergman’s extraordinarily intense account of a successful psychiatrist’s gradual but shattering breakdown. The meticulous attention to psychological and social detail makes for engrossing viewing: the performances – especially that of Ullmann – are uncompromisingly honest, while the scenes vividly depicting her anxious fantasies have a profoundly unsettling nightmarish reality. Bergman likened the piece to a surgeon’s scalpel.
