"Beautifully made: visually exquisite, ingeniously knit." - Stanley Kauffmann, The New Republic

The first in a series of three films that Bergman would later designate as a trilogy, THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY won him his second Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. Karin (Andersson), a recently released mental patient, convalesces at her family's seaside summer cabin. Her father (Björnstrand) and husband (von Sydow), both self-absorbed intellectuals, distance themselves from the recovery process while Karen fixates on her vulnerable and sexually susceptible younger brother. Andersson, arguably the best actress of Bergman's early period, gives her greatest performance here; her harrowing "God is a spider" scene is one of the director's highpoints. In Swedish with English subtitles. New DCP digital restoration. (BS)
