I really don't want to write a full technical review of the Movie. Suffice it to say it was a stunning and gripping tale.
It is a real shame this is not available commercially. Anyone with more information about who owns the rights to this film or it's current where abouts please let us know via additional posts I guess. It's a must see....
Bergman is compelling in her seamless performance. The film has an absurdist/existential feel to it almost like an extended high comedy with a taste of twilight zone. It has kind gestalt impact like Blue Angel and Children of Paradise.
