by Ingmar Bergman


Following 2 characters, Marianne and Johan, the film, in typical Bergman East-European 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.
