The Touch (15)

Sweden/1971/108mins/15/subs Dir: Ingmar Bergman With: Elliot Gould, Bibi Andersson, Max von Sydow

Karin Vergerus, enjoys a peaceful but unexciting marriage to surgeon Andreas in a small town in suburban Sweden. When American Jewish archaeologist, David Kovac visits the village, David's freedom to travel and live life fully is intoxicating to Karin, who yearns for adventure. But Karin still loves her husband and her family, and she ends up feeling torn between conflicting desires. In his first English-language feature Bergman deals once more with a complex moral question with simplicity and elegance.


"A romantic film of great poignancy and strength and an example of masterful cinema honed down to deceptively simple near-perfection."
