Restored & Unseen: Shame (Skammen)
Ingmar Bergman / SE, 1968 / 103 min.
Watching the trailer of Ingmar Bergman’s Shame – regarded by Tarkovsky as a highlight in Bergman’s oeuvre – can be a bit puzzling. A war film by the maker of The Silence and Scenes from a Marriage? The Swedish director was not out of his depth, however. The couple that retires to an island after having escaped from a war situation is also facing a profound marital crisis. Restored version. 21 October, introduced by Eye programmer Leo van Hee (in Dutch).
Restored & Unseen
At last, a chance to see that Italian classic that’s been on the list for so long? Or relish that wonderful restoration of Blue Movie, the Netherlands’ most talked-about nude film of the seventies, when the Bijlmer district was still a sexual paradise? Restored & Unseen is a biweekly programme featuring classics and recent restorations, with introductions by experts.
