Ingmar Bergman / Sweden/USA 1971 / 1h55m / Digital / English, Swedish and French with English subtitles
Cast: Elliott Gould, Bibi Andersson, Max von Sydow, Sheila Reid.
Karin (Bibi Andersson), a happily married mother of two, surprises herself by responding in-kind to an unforeseen profession of love from David (Elliott Gould), an archaeologist visiting Sweden, whom her doctor husband (Max von Sydow) has befriended. But love, however toxically exhilarating, is seldom simple, and deceit and David’s volatile temperament take their toll. Too often overlooked in Ingmar Bergman's canon, 'The Touch' marked the first time the director worked with an established Hollywood star.
