Years after her aunt was murdered in her home, a young woman moves back into the house with her new husband. However, he has a secret that he will do anything to protect, even if it means driving his wife insane.
Irene Wagner, the wife of prominent scientist Albert Wagner, finds herself blackmailed about her affair by her lover's jealous ex-girlfriend. The plot, an experiment in causing fear, drives her into a rage.
To prepare for her role of Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir, in A Woman Called Golda (1982), Ingrid Bergman traveled around Israel and interviewed those who had known Golda. She spent hours studying old newsreels to master Golda's mannerisms. She was 66 years old at the time. See more »
Fine saga of a woman of great vision and fortitude. The picture doesn't sugar coat what Golda had to give up to become who she was and while it pained her to do it somehow she knew it was her destiny to have it happen. Ingrid is great as always, this makes it even more poignant that this was her final work it shows that had she lived there would have continued to be many years of extraordinary work ahead. Judy Davis' screen time as the young Golda is limited but she conveys the scrappy girl who became the indomitable woman. Also outstanding in his smallish role is Leonard Nimoy as Golda's husband. An excellent rendering of an important life.
