BBC 1970
Dir Alan Bridges
With Gemma Jones, Frank Finlay

Written by Ingmar Bergman, The Lie was part of The Largest Theatre in the World strand, through which the same play was made and transmitted simultaneously by several European broadcasters. In this very fine BBC production that captures the introspective neurosis of the period, Jones and Finlay give performances of searing emotional honesty as we witness the painful disintegration of a marriage.
