Cries and Whispers stars Liv Ullman and Ingrid Thulin as the sisters of dying cancer patient Harriet Andersson. Both sisters have already had brushes with death: Ullman has had an affair which prompted her husband's suicide, while Thulin has long wanted to do away with herself, at one point mutilating her own vagina out of self-hatred.

Ingmar Bergman's dark vision of the human condition has focused on individuals incapable of real inter-personal communications except on the most primitive level.
It stands alone and it reduces almost everything else you're likely to see this season to the size of a small cinder.
In order to understand why Cries and Whispers is a great film, it must be experienced, not merely watched.
Bergman never made another film this painful. To see it is to touch the extremes of human feeling. It is so personal, so penetrating of privacy, we almost want to look away.
Starring Sweden's best actresses, this is one of Ingmar Bergman's undisputed masterpieces, which was nominated for the Best Picture Oscar
A stunning piece of pure cinema by a master filmmaker.
The most haunting death story in the movies, exquisitely photographed, like a reverie just before the afterlife.
Relentlessly discursive and somber, also hauntingly elliptical and exquisitely crafted.
