saw bergman’s “scenes from a marriage” last night. it’s like an immensely charged chamber play with two brilliant actors (liv ullmann and erland josephson). it navigates the ups and downs of love and marriage with a directness, a brutality not often seen in film. rather than evade contradictions and strive for black and white platitudes, the film is a journey in which two people grow, in a relationship that spans two decades. they r confused and imperfect – they can be cruel, self-abasing but also incredibly touching. just like in real life. hey, who said marriage was boring?
