Cries and Whispers

Ingmar Bergman / SE, 1972 / 91 min.

Ingmar Bergman gives insight into the inner lives of three sisters, one of whom is dying. Liv Ullmann, Kari Sylwan, Ingrid Thulin and Harriet Anderson turn in exceptional performances in an intense story of family relationships, self-centredness and dealing with the dying. This film inspired Ivo van Hove’s play Kreten en gefluister: see the exhibition All About Theatre About Film.
