    1 star1 star1 star1 starNo star    Great Film but time for a new translation

    The synopsis given above will give you all the details you need about the story. The only reason for giving this film 4 instead of five stars is that watching this after having learned Swedish I find the translation a bit watered down. The great scene early on in the film where the guest couple have a very public and quite bitter needling match is under-translated. With a smiling face the husband tells his wife that they shouldn't be airing their dirty laundry in public the translation and says " we shouldn't create any emotional stains..." when what he really says is "we shouldn't create any emotional specks of shit". This kind of sanitation really tones down the pithy hurtfulness of this scene and the subtitling deserves a more enlightened and liberal translation.

    1 star1 star1 star1 starNo star    Well worth persevering with. Bergman¿s relentless realism.

    If you have the stomach for two and half-hours of traumatic relationship strive, then Bergman's "scenes form a marriage" is utterly rewarding as well as profoundly thought provoking. The slow decline and eventual meaningful and realistic conclusion of a relationship between a man and women who come to both realise the complexity of life and the intensity of other people's existence is a philosophical wonder that to date I have seen only in the work of Bergman. Woody Alan may have successfully presented Bergman's subject matter in a more jovial manner, but if you want life in all its horror, pain, bliss and uncertainty then you will find "scenes form a marriage" a step into the real world. This film is not escapism; it is about as close as you will get to someone else's "real".

    I strongly recommend this film. It has a great deal to say about how we treat each other as lovers, friends, enemies, mothers, fathers and in sum as distant people not ourselves. The end whilst not romantic, has a poignancy and tenderness that may make you cry in concurring with the fragility and finiteness of life.
