SWE | 1966 | dir. Ingmar Bergman, with Bibi Andersson, Liv Ullmann, Margaretha Krook, Jörgen Lindström

After Elizabeth (Liv Ullmann), a famed actress, lapses into silence from what appears to be a breakdown, she goes to a beach house with Anna (Bibi Andersson), a nurse, as sole company. Over the next weeks, as Anna struggles to reach her mute patient, they both find themselves experiencing a strange emotional convergence. Bergman’s most audacious and formally innovative work charts the increasingly tense battle of wits between the two women.
