A must for all avid Berman fans - of which I am one. Every one of his films (with perhaps the exception of the dreadful Serpent's Egg) has something to offer. For me, it's Bergman's realistic view of the world as a mess; the torment of people's inner world, mirrored often (but not always) by their outer world. He really gets to the heart of what ails us as human beings. As one of the characters in Torment says: "Wait, you'll see how rotten everything is. It's truly ingenious". Strangely, I don't find his films depressing at all - because they are about real life in all its horror, they are refreshing to watch and leave you feeling "clean" and less alone in the world. "Torment" is no exception.
