Actress Marianne Vogler (Lena Endre) and her husband, Markus (Thomas Hanzon) have a 9-year-old daughter, Isabelle (Michelle Gylemo). Markus, an orchestra conductor, is often away, and casually, almost without thought, Marianne starts an affair with theater director David (Krister Henriksson). Thus starts another of Ingmar Bergman's relentless examinations of love and sex and pain in the affairs of women and men. For FAITHLESS, Bergman is the scriptwriter--not the director. He writes from the point of view of a solitary old man, also called Bergman (Erland Josephson), who lives on a remote island. He remembers an affair he had long ago. From time to time, Marianne interrupts him to correct his version of their story.
FAITHLESS is directed by Liv Ullmann. As an actress, Ullmann burst into Bergman's cinematic world in the 1960s, with stunning performances in PERSONA, SHAME, and THE PASSION OF ANNA. In the 1990s, she began directing. FAITHLESS is her fourth film as director, her second from a Bergman script. Ullmann directs with unpretentious precision, working closely with her actors, and she gives the story a new inflection, making real and vivid the predicament of Isabelle in the face of (what she sees as) the unpredictable behavior of the adults.
