The performances and the staging have a risky, improvisatory edge; Bergman even cuts away to interviews with his four lead actors.
Another bold step forward in Bergman's analysis of human isolation.
The Passion of Anna is one of Bergman's most beautiful films (it is his second in color), all tawny, wintry grays and browns, deep blacks, and dark greens, highlighted occasionally by splashes of red, sometimes blood.
A tentative, plotless film that pulses with the rhythms of life rather than the rhythms of drama.
Flawed, but still brilliant, The Passion is an essential.
Sven Nykvist's color cinematography makes Ullmann's blue eyes a thing to behold.
Never less than fascinating, even when it falters.
The Passion of Anna employs some interesting techniques, such as interviews with each of the four main actors and also sheds some light on many of the baroque mannerisms and symbols that have come to be associated with Bergman.
The "passion" of the film's title is not a physical suffering, like Christ's at Golgotha, but an emotional one, an exposing of oneself to the world for the sake of love.
Um filme de erros e acertos: o plano final, por exemplo, é brilhante; em contrapartida, as entrevistas com os atores durante a projeção acabam soando apenas pretensiosas.
While it lacks the lightness of touch and smooth flow that distinguishes Bergman at his finest, this is still a powerful, profound work of art.
If you make it past a very dull first 50 mins you should enjoy it. If it remained at the same pace as the first fifty-minutes this would've been more toward the 2 star range. There will be one scene in this first half that'll leave you shaken up, the rest will leave you yawning. After this the film builds up as you see Anna's darker side. She was always a weird one but we never saw the sinister version of her. Bergman style is very unique even using clips from past films of his and interviewing the actors for character analysis mid movie.
The Passion of Anna, which takes place on a remote island, is an extremely complex tale about four people trying to fill the voids left by disillusion and past tragedies.
Bergman is the master when it comes to dealing with the intricacies of love and relationships, this film is extraordinary in the way it slowly gives us an insight into these four lost souls as the struggle to make sense of life and try to find their way which isn't easy, the bleak landscape, the desolation, the sparse dialogue, Liv Ullemans face in close up all come together to produce an explosive emotional roller-coaster with an inevitable outcome, the violence of the characters emotions spill over into the environment in the form of an unexplained killer of dumb animals.
Where are the contemporary films to match such genius, where are the voices to guide us through the fog?
