Overview

Ingmar Bergman’s sole film with his namesake Ingrid sees her as a famous concert pianist visiting her daughter (Liv Ullmann), a pastor’s wife, after many years; the conversation becomes more painfully frank as the hours pass. Exquisite acting from all concerned makes for riveting viewing, nowhere more so than in a scene featuring two rather different performances of a Chopin prelude.
