It's a movie that shows us that the silence between two people can be more dramatic than 100 pages of dialogue.

Bergman has been far better at working out these themes than anything in Faithless would suggest.

These three adults are all sick puppies. But neither the actors nor their director has created any reason for one to care.

This could be a regretful remembrance of things past on the part of "Bergman" or it could be a pure fiction torn from the ether.

House Next Door

While not to everyone's taste, the technical and narrative complexity alone are to be applauded - the film looks gorgeous, and the film is both literate and witty.

Audience Reviews for Faithless

I'm not familiar with Ingmar Bergman's movies. I have not seen any of his movies till Faithless. I know it was directed by Liv Ulmann but written by Bergman. My friend told me, you will recognize Bergman's themes in almost all his movies.The movie showed an old man, representing Bergman,writing a new script for a movie. A lady accompanies him, telling him everything about her life, as a married woman, betraying her husband with his best friend and the consequences of her actions. The script seemed predictable, but was really surprising.I It was just something different for me but unbelievably good.
