The war follows a
brilliant young couple, both violinists, attempt to evade a long-raging civil war by
retreating to an island off the coast, when they are charged with
collaborating with the enemy. A visually spare, emotionally powerful work about
hopelessness, betrayal and human weakness. With Liv Ullmann, Max Von Sydow and Gunnar
Bjornstrand. Cinematography by Sven Nykvist. Swedish with English subtitles.
Black and white. 102 minutes.
