The Silence (1963)

SouthWest Film Center pays tribute to master filmmaker Ingmar Bergman by screening his provocative 1963 drama. Two spiteful sisters, Ester and Anna, and a young boy named Johan find themselves stuck in a strange foreign country while on their way home. Anna, who is young and voluptuous, copes with the alien environment by cruising for sex with strangers. Ester, who is dying from some unnamed disease, reads books and uses Johan as a pawn in a power game with her sister. There's almost no dialogue in this film, and you've got to read a lot between the lines to figure out what's going on. But it's classic Bergman. In Swedish with English subtitles. Double-featured with Through a Glass Darkly. 95 minutes
