Scenes From a Marriage, is by far, Bergman's greatest creation. Following 2 characters, Marianne and Johan, the film, in typical Bergman exquisite style, examines ontological questions of love, loneliness, being and what it means to be 'fulfilled'. As with all of Betgman's films, 'Scenes From a Marriage', is not simply a narrative about a married couple and their 'ups and downs'. Bergman, successfully probes into what it means and feels like to need the love and/or security, validation of another person and the consequences of life-changing decisions. It is a must-see, from the greatest film maker there has ever been.
