Lena Endre, Erland Josephson, Krister Henriksson, Thomas Hanzon,

Marriage and infidelity have rarely been treated as intelligently as in Liv Ullmann’s masterful adaptation of a screenplay by none other than Ingmar Bergman, her ex-director and, intriguingly, her ex-lover. Framed within the reminiscences of an elderly man (Erland Josephson), Faithless tracks the adulterous romance between a conductor’s wife and a narcissistic filmmaker. Tracking how love unexpectedly emerges, and just as suddenly disappears, Ullmann crafts a fitting tribute to the master himself, “enough to keep Bergmania alive and kicking in the hearts of art-film mourners everywhere” (Village Voice). A Los Angeles Times review called the film “an unqualified triumph.”
