THE PASSION OF ANNA
Tuesday, March 13
Directed by Ingmar Bergman
Starring Liv Ullmann, Max von Sydow, Bibi Andersson, and Erland Josephson
(1969) On the island of Fårö, solitude-seeking Max von Sydow finds himself involved with cynical couple Bibi Andersson and Erland Josephson and high-strung widow Liv Ullmann, with major events seemingly transpiring between scenes, a memorable dinner sequence, and intercut analyses of their roles by the actors. DCP restoration. Approx. 101 min.
“A lesser-known yet formidable work, which finds Bergman shifting from black and white to color and, in snatches, to a freer handheld style. But the closeups are no less concentrated than they were in Persona, and, as usual, it is the female face at which we unflinchingly stare.”
– Anthony Lane, The New Yorker
