Ingmar Bergman's gut-wrenching drama stars Liv Ullmann (Cries and Whispers) as a successful psychiatrist who, despite her professional prowess, suffers from profound depression and mental illness. She finds herself teetering on the brink of a nervous breakdown, haunted by disturbing images and emotions from her past. Desperately in search of a escape from her doldrums, she has an affair with fellow doctor Tomas Jacobi (Erland Josephson, The Sacrifice). This only worsens her hysteria as she struggles to maintain her grasp on sanity and reality. Ullmann's devastating performance earned her multiple awards including a Golden Globe® nomination and an Oscar® nomination*. Writer, Producer and Director Ingmar Bergman (The Seventh Seal) was also nominated* for a Best Director Academy Award®.
