Face to Face
Ingmar Bergman, 1975
USA | Format: Digibeta | 136 minutes

The brilliant Liv Ullmann plays a psychiatrist whose sanity begins to erode during a stay with her grandparents while her daughter and husband are away on trips.  Originally a made-for-TV miniseries, Face to Face dives soul-deep into the landscape of Ullmann's face as she confronts and succumbs to madness.  "When the camera is as close as Ingmar's sometimes gets," testifies Ullmann, "it doesn't only show a face but also what kind of life this face has seen." With Erland Josephson, Gunnar Bjornstrand, adn the always-superb cinematography of Sven Nykvist.
