Viskningar Och Rop (Cries and Whispers)


her painting again.

Karin's husband decided

to join them at Easter.

They've been having

good weather.

It's like summer, even though

the nights are chilly.

Your husband, he's well?

Joakim, he had some business

in town this evening...

and won't be back

'til tomorrow.

I told him I would ask you

to come here to look in...

on Anna's little girl.

- He sends his best regards.

- Thank you.

Anna's been told

to get the guest room ready.

The weather's so awful.

I don't think you ought

to go home on such a night.

- You've changed a lot.

- Really? Oh.

Is there anyone else?

Isn't there always?

I never would have thought

the problem could interest you.

Nor does it.


Do you wear spectacles

all the time now?

- Am I bothering you?

- No, it's all right.

Why are you so formal?

Couldn't you let the past

be forgotten?

Come here, Marie.


Look at yourself

in the mirror.

You're beautiful.

You are probably

more beautiful now than before.

But you have changed

a lot too.

I want you to see

how you've changed.

Now your eyes cast quick,

calculating side glances.

You used to look ahead


openly, unmasked.

Your mouth has taken on

an expression of discontent...

and hunger.

It used to be so soft.

Your complexion is pale now.

You use makeup.

Your fine, broad forehead...

now has four wrinkles

above each brow.

No, you can't see it

in this light...

but you can

in broad daylight.

Do you know what

caused those wrinkles?

- No.

- Indifference, Marie.

And this fine line

that runs from ear to chin...

is not as obvious any more...

but it is etched there by

your easygoing, indolent ways.

And there,

by the bridge of your nose.

Why do you sneer

so often, Marie?

You see it?

You sneer too often.

See, Marie?

Ingmar Bergman

Ernst Ingmar Bergman (Swedish pronunciation: [ˈɪŋmar ˈbærjman] ( listen); 14 July 1918 – 30 July 2007) was a Swedish director, writer, and producer who worked in film, television, theatre and radio. Considered to be among the most accomplished and influential filmmakers of all time, Bergman's renowned works include Smiles of a Summer Night (1955), The Seventh Seal (1957), Wild Strawberries (1957), The Silence (1963), Persona (1966), Cries and Whispers (1972), Scenes from a Marriage (1973), and Fanny and Alexander (1982). Bergman directed over sixty films and documentaries for cinematic release and for television, most of which he also wrote. He also directed over 170 plays. From 1953, he forged a powerful creative partnership with his full-time cinematographer Sven Nykvist. Among his company of actors were Harriet and Bibi Andersson, Liv Ullmann, Gunnar Björnstrand, Erland Josephson, Ingrid Thulin and Max von Sydow. Most of his films were set in Sweden, and numerous films from Through a Glass Darkly (1961) onward were filmed on the island of Fårö. His work often deals with death, illness, faith, betrayal, bleakness and insanity. Philip French referred to Bergman as "one of the greatest artists of the 20th century [...] he found in literature and the performing arts a way of both recreating and questioning the human condition." Mick LaSalle argued, "Like Virginia Woolf and James Joyce in literature, Ingmar Bergman strove to capture and illuminate the mystery, ecstasy and fullness of life, by concentrating on individual consciousness and essential moments." more…
