The Passion Of Anna

The Passion Of Anna

Synopsis

The art of Bergman reaches its pinnacle in this penetrating portrait of four lost souls seeking solace in one another, even as their lives are torn apart by deception, isolation and psychological turmoil. On a windswept, barren island, Andreas (Max Von Sydow) lives simply and quietly until he becomes entangled with Anna (Liv Ullmann), a beautiful, mysterious widow, and neighbouring couple (Bibi Andersson, Erland Josephson) harbouring their own sorrows and illusions. Soon, secrets from Andreas and Anna's pasts threaten to shatter not only their desperate attempt at love but their tenuous hold on reality as well.
