About the movie

As Agnes slowly dies of cancer, her sisters are so deeply immersed in their own psychic pains that they can't offer her the support she needs. Maria is wracked with guilt at her husband's attempted suicide, caused by his discovery of her extramarital affair. The self-loathing, suicidal Karin seems to regard her sister with revulsion. Only Anna, the deeply religious maid who lost her young child, seems able to offer Agnes solace and empathy.

Ingmar Bergman’s diabolically inspired claustrophobic horror Bergman’s 1972 film is rereleased, the story of sisters waiting for one to die, and it shocks and disturbs in equal measure.
