Ingmar Bergman / Sweden 1963 / 1h35m / Digital / Swedish, English, German, French and Spanish with English subtitles
Cast: Ingrid Thulin, Gunnel Lindblom, Birger Malmsten, Håkan Jahnberg, Jörgen Lindström.
The relationship between two sisters Ester (Ingrid Thulin) and Anna (Gunnel Lindblom) reaches breaking point when they arrive in a strange country and move into a large, near-empty hotel. Ester is suffering from a terminal disease and has become overly protective of Anna and, to escape, Anna goes out into the world to find a man. 'The Silence' unfurls in a bizarre, alien city, racked by decrepitude and rumours of war. One of Bergman’s most fluent films, with a soundtrack alive with Bach and the moaning of sirens off-screen.
