This review is from: Cries And Whispers  [DVD] (DVD)
This is a powerful and intense film depicting the relationships between three sisters, one of whom is dying, as well as their maid, Anna. Colour was still a relatively new tool for Bergman when this was made, and the way he uses it adds to the visual power of the film, with an almost overwhelming amount of red being employed both in the sets and also in between scenes. (Instead of the usual cuts or fades, Bergman fades to a pure red screen and then fades into the next scene.) Viskingar och rop features outstanding performances from three of Bergman's favourite actresses: Harriet Andersson, Liv Ullmann and Ingrid Thulin.
