About This Item

Duisburg, Germany: Atlas Filmverleih, 1964. First Edition. First Edition of Atlas Filmheft double issue booklet number 32 on the 1963 film, text in German. Featuring 18 essays, an Ingmar Bergman filmography, and illustrated with black and white film still photographs throughout.

The third entry in Ingmar Bergman's trilogy of faith and redemption, preceded by "Through A Glass Darkly" (1961) and "Winter Light"(1963).

A stark and enigmatic allegory fueled by subtle performances from Ingrid Thulin and Gunnel Lindblom, wherein Ester (Thulin), suffering from a terminal disease, is traveling home with her younger sister Anna (Lindblom), and Anna's son Johan, when they stop in the town of Timoka, a fictional European county on the brink of war with an unknown dialect. After checking into a nearly empty hotel (with the exception of a group of Spanish dwarves in a traveling show), Anna leaves and has an affair with a waiter as Johan wanders the hallways of the hotel.

9.25 x 8 inches, 16 pages, side stapled with self wrappers. Very Good plus, with light creasing to the lower right corner and light soiling to the rear wrapper.

Criterion Collection 211. Ebert III.
