In this sequel to The Best Intentions, August and Fröler reprise their roles as Bergman’s mother and father, with the former – now in her mid-30s – confessing to her clergyman uncle (von Sydow) that the frustrations of married life have led to an affair. Directed with sympathetic intensity by Ullmann, Bergman’s script switches back and forth in time, emphasising the anguish of his beloved mother.
