    (Svensk Filmindustri (SF))

The second of Ingmar Bergman´s trilogy on Faith, Winter Light springs from Bergman´s desire to define man´s relation to God - if He exists. A village pastor, unloved and empty of faith, reveals his bitter failure to offer spiritual consolation to his flock. Sombre and poignant, the film sketches a world of half empty churches - but a world not entirely without hope in God´s universe.

Tormented by doubts about his own faith and tempted by an offer of marriage from schoolteacher Ingrid Thulin, pastor Gunnar Bjornstrand is also aware of the duty he owes to parishioner Max von Sydow, who is contemplating suicide in the face of a nuclear crisis.

Composed for the most part in close-ups, Bergman's film is a powerful and pessimistic look at God's relationship with humanity, but, in spite of exceptional performances, it won't be for all tastes.
