SCENES FROM A MARRIAGE Part 1
[SCENER UR ETT ÄEKTENSKAP]
When Erland Josephson suddenly leaves his wife Liv Ullmann for another woman, they are forced to confront the disintegration of their marriage. This film, shot in intense, intimate close-ups by master cinematographer Sven Nykvist, chronicles the 10 years of turmoil and love that bind the couple despite their divorce and subsequent marriages. Flawless acting and dialogue portray the brutal pain and uplifting peace that accompany a lifetime of loving. (Note courtesy of The Criterion Collection.)
