Trolösa (Faithless)

Posted by martinteller on January 14, 2005

An unusual idea, and the themes are pure Bergman, but excessive narration bogs it down.  Lots of long flashbacks with voice-over telling us how the characters felt.  It’s very cold and distancing.  Show, don’t tell.  Underdeveloped and overlong at 150 minutes, but some moments of good insight make it somewhat worthwhile.  Rating: 6

addendum 06/13/2012: It pains me to see I used the tired old “Show, don’t tell” bullshit in this review.  I hate that phrase now.
