This is really abstract for Bergman, who usually deals with pretty straightforward narratives. It definitely requires multiple viewings. But I’m not sure it’s a favorite of mine. I’m fascinated by it, and some parts are very engaging, but on the whole it might be too much style over substance for my tastes. It’s kind of a natural progression from The Silence but I’m glad he got it out of his system.
