SILENCE, THE (1963)
The last of the "God and Man" trilogy, this sexually provocative portrait of two women's frayed personalities prefigures Ingmar Bergman's masterpiece PERSONA. Forced to disembark from their train in a foreign country seemingly on the brink of war, sisters Ingrid Thulin and Gunnel Lindblom, along with Lindblom's young son Jörgen Lindström, take residence in the strangely vacant Hotel Europa. Here, the two sisters' tense relationship begins to unravel. DIR/SCR Ingmar Bergman; PROD Allan Ekelund. Sweden, 1963, b&w, 96 min. In Swedish with English subtitles. NOT RATED
