Sweden 1963
Dir Ingmar Bergman
With Gunnar Björnstrand, Ingrid Thulin, Max von Sydow, Gunnel Lindblom
English subtitles
Certificate PG

A widowed village pastor (Björnstrand), tormented by private doubt, finds dealing with his troubled parishioners and the teacher who was his lover (Thulin) an increasingly oppressive burden. Drawing in part on personal experience, Bergman turns a dark, stark chamber drama into a remarkably rich meditation on the difficulty of living in uncertain times; the dialogues between the protagonist and his motley flock ring scarily true.
