Bergman’s modernist masterpiece about the fraught, symbiotic relationship between an actress traumatised into silence and the chatty nurse tending to her on a remote island sees cinematographer Sven Nykvist focus primarily on the fascinating topography of the human face. Vivid yet mysterious, this story of the relationship between life and art alternates between a nightmarish clarity and the diffuse aura of daydreams.
