* MinimalistCast

to:

* MinimalistCastMinimalistCast: There's only four or five (if you think the boy from the prologue is meaningful) characters in the whole film. It's only Alma and Elisabet who are onscreen for the great majority of the film, with the head doctor and Elisabet's husband being in it very briefly.

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenAce: Elisabet is a talented and respected actress and has a successful marriage and a son. Except she hates the kid and the very society she lives in, which leads her to become mute and need treatment.


Added DiffLines:

* MandatoryMotherhood: In the past, someone told Elisabet that the only thing she was lacking was being a mother. She had no interest in having children before, but what that person said bothered her, so she allowed herself to get pregnant without being sure of whether she really wanted it.

* BrokenPedestal: Alma seems to look up to Elisabet as an actress at first. When it turns out Elisabet is writing about Alma in a rather condescending tone in her letters, Alma loses her respect for her and starts hating her.



* SuddenlyVoiced: Elisabet, who spends most of the film in silence, speaks in three instances, though it [[MindScrew may not have happened]].

* SuddenlyVoiced: Elisabet, who spends most of the film in silence, speaks in three instances, though it [[MindScrew may not have happened]]. It's interesting to note that the camera avoids showing Elisabet's mouth moving in the first two instances.

At first, it is pretty straightforward: an actress named Elisabet Vogler suddenly decides not to speak and is thus considered mentally ill. She and Alma, the nurse who takes care of her, are sent to a Summer cottage in hopes that it will help nurse the actress back to health. Alma talks to her a lot, first about trivial things and then about increasingly personal matters. One day, she reads a letter by Elisabet to her husband, which talks about these matters; among them, a sexual tryst Alma had with [[NoYay underage boys]]. Cold war ensues.

Added DiffLines:

* ParentalNeglect: One of the reasons for Elisabet's condition, recounted by Alma in the film's climax, is having a son she didn't want and who she can't bring herself to love. It's said the son lives with relatives and Elisabet only sees him sporadically and unwillingly.

A 1966 classic film by [[UsefulNotes/{{Sweden}} Swedish]] director Creator/IngmarBergman (the guy who made ''Film/TheSeventhSeal''), starring Creator/BibiAndersson and Creator/LivUllmann. As with anything by Creator/IngmarBergman, this movie rides heavily on symbolism and philosophy. Its plot is... hard [[MindScrew to explain]].

A 1966 classic film psychological drama by [[UsefulNotes/{{Sweden}} Swedish]] director Creator/IngmarBergman (the guy who made ''Film/TheSeventhSeal''), Creator/IngmarBergman, starring Creator/BibiAndersson and Creator/LivUllmann. As with anything by Creator/IngmarBergman, this much of Bergman's filmography, the movie rides heavily on symbolism and philosophy. Its plot is... hard [[MindScrew hard to explain]].



Whatever happens from there on is entirely up to you to guess. The director's [[ShrugOfGod lack of explanation]] does not help. However, it is still regarded as one of the best movies by Ingmar Bergman.
