Cries and Whispers

Director: Ingmar Bergman
Duration: 90 min

A dying woman (Andersson) is attended to in her rural mansion by her sisters (Ullmann, Thulin) and her maid... That’s the simple premisefor one of Bergman’s most resonant studies of familial bonds, solitude, suffering and the female psyche. The remarkable saturated colour scheme transcends mere recreation of early 20th-century furnishings, décor and costumes; performed to perfection, the film is an examination of the human soul.
