In 2018 Ingmar Bergman would have turned 100. On this page we have presented a Bergman film every week, all through the centennial year. We will end the year like we started, with a film directed by someone else after a script by Bergman. This week’s work is Faithless (original title: Trolösa) directed by Liv Ullmann.
“Faithless was first screened in competition at the Cannes Film Festival in 2000. Though it had a rather cool reception, Lena Endre was praised for her portrayal of Marianne Vogler. Still, the prize for best actress went to Björk in Dancer in the Dark, Lars von Trier’s film who also won the Palme d’Or.
Swedish critics were kinder when the film premiered in Sweden in September of the same year. The critics applauded Liv Ullmann’s good care of her actors, not the least Lena Endre, who once again received praise.”
