Wonderfully open to interpretation, Ingmar Bergman’s masterpiece features towering performances from Liv Ullmann and Bibi Andersson as Elisabet and Alma, a patient and a nurse whose relationship and personalities begin to mirror and melt. Striking camera angles and innovative editing techniques consistently foreground the actors’ faces, while Ullmann and Andersson’s palpable artistic and personal connection created what Ullmann called the ‘two faces of one mask’.
