    (Cinematograph AB)

The relationship between three sisters is masterfully explored by Bergman in Cries and Whispers.

Set in rural Sweden around the turn of the century, three sisters reside in a vast manor house with their housekeeper. Agnes painfully lives out the last days of her life, hoping for companionship and affection. Her sisters have come to her bedside, but the self-absorbtion and paralysis caused by the dissatisfaction they experience in their day-to-day lives, and their estrangement from one another, inhibits their love for their sister, and eventually causes them to turn their backs on her.

Atmospheric and haunting, with supreme performances by all four actresses, and award-winning cinematography by Svenk Nykvist make the film a true masterpiece.

An extraordinarily rich visual experience, featuring supreme performances by some of Bergman´s favourite actresses, Cries and Whispers is that rarest of things - a true masterpiece.
