Liv Ullmann and Bibi Andersson are masterful in Ingmar Bergman's surreal examination of the symbiotic relationship between two women set in a remote summer house.

Alma is a young, soon to be wed nurse who is employed to care for Elisabeth Vogler, a famous actress who has fallen silent. Their relationship deepens when they spend the summer alone, and before long, Alma descends into a trance, racked with Elisabeth's thoughts and fears.

Unreal visions purvey throughout Bergman's classic film within a film, that plays like a cinematic fever dream.
