Dir Ingmar Bergman
With Liv Ullmann, Max von Sydow, Bibi Andersson, Erland Josephson
English subtitles
Certificate 12A

Meeting through mutual friends, recently divorced Andreas (von Sydow) and recently widowed Anna (Ullmann) try to find comfort with one another, but their efforts are undermined both by their own emotional impulses and by shocking events on the island where they live (Fårö). An incisive, insightful study of isolation and obsession, enhanced by Sven Nykvist’s grainy colour camerawork and interludes with the actors commenting on their characters.

See Liv Ullmann in conversation on Friday 19 January.
