Sasom i en Spegel
Through a Glass Darkly
Directed by Ingmar Bergman
I have been sitting in front of the computer for about fifteen minutes now, trying to figure out what to write. On the one hand, I am not a Bergman fan and always find his films dull. On the other hand, the acting was fantastic and the cinematography was beautiful. On a third, mutant hand, I have a lot to do today and cannot take too long with this review.
A family visits a home in Sweden. All seems well, except for the fact that the daughter is slowly losing her mind. Sounds like my family visits (BAZING-just kidding, Dad).
So like I said, the acting is wonderful and I actually felt as though I was watching someone lose their mind. Still, I have never felt riveted by anything Bergman shows me. The movies should either be shorter or have more excitement. We are simply not a good fit. This would be acceptable, except I have to keep writing about them and repeating the same thing over and over again. Did I mention the camera work is beautiful?
Glad I saw it, but I will never watch it again.
Filmed on the island of Faro. Even the trivia isn't that interesting.
