Academy Award® nominee Liv Ullmann plays Marianne, a lawyer and ex-wife to a retired professor, Johan (Erland Josephson), who after thirty-two years of separation decides to visit him at his summerhouse in the Western province of Dalarna. While there she becomes embroiled in the dramatic tension between her ex-husband, his son from another marriage, Henrik, and his granddaughter, Karin, a beautiful and gifted young cellist. Still mourning the death of Henrik's wife, Anna, relations between father and son are very strained and Marianne soon realizes that things are not as they should be in this contemporary drama about the struggle for power, liberation, and ultimately, reconciliation.
Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: If Saraband appears to be a minor entry in Ingmar Bergman's filmography, it's still an accomplished piece of work from one of cinema's greatest masters.
