SAM and the Nordic Museum continue our centennial celebration of Swedish writer-director Ingmar Bergman. Marshalling superb actors like Liv Ullmann, Max Von Sydow, Bibi Andersson and Ingrid Bergman, and the Oscar-winning cinematography of Sven Nykvist, Bergman explores deep existential questions, and the abiding mystery and beauty of life.

about the film

A chance encounter with a beautiful woman (Liv Ullmann) embroils Max Von Sydow in the personal dramas of her, an architect (Erland Josephson), and his wife (Bibi Andersson). Von Sydow knows it can be dangerous to get involved with others, but how can he resist? As mysteries of tangled emotions and wicked actions proliferate, Ullmann dreams of “Living in the truth.” Digital restoration, 101 min.
