Cinecast #28: Bergman's Last Symphony
Friday, 12 August 2005 01:00
You mean it?  You'll listen to Cinecast #28 with me?

Calling Ingmar Bergman's latest film a "sequel" to 1974's "Scenes From A Marriage" is like calling the Sistine Chapel a sequel to the Pieta. In "Saraband," Johan and Marianne -- the unhappy couple from Bergman's landmark '70s film -- are reunited after 30 years apart. Your hosts disagree on how the two films match up -- Adam considers "Scenes" a masterpiece, which Bergman's latest cannot hope to equal; while Sam actually found more to like in "Saraband." But one thing is clear: at 87 years of age, Bergman is still a master of psychological storytelling.

Also on the show, Listener Feedback, our Overlooked DVD Picks of the Week, and the Top 5 Movies About Marriage.
