* CompleteTheQuoteTitle: The title is taken from the I Corinthians quote that also gave ''Film/ThroughAGlassDarkly'' its title.

* ChewingTheScenery: Liv Ullmann, which may be a case of TropesAreNotBad. Bergman himself was later critical of it.

-->Now when I watch ''Film/FaceToFace'', I remember an old farce with Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, and Dorothy Lamour. It's called ''Film/RoadToMorocco''. They have been shipwrecked and come floating on a raft in front of a projected New York in the background. In the final scene, Bob Hope throws himself to the ground and begins to scream and foam at the mouth. The others stare at him in astonishment and ask what in the world he is doing. He immediately calms down and says, 'This is how you have to do it if you want to win an Oscar.' When I watch ''Face to Face'' and Liv Ullmann's incredibly loyal effort on my behalf, I still can't help thinking of ''The Road to Morocco''.


* BlackEyesOfCrazy: Jenny keeps seeing an old woman with one completely black eye whenever her [[SanitySlippage hold on reality wavers]].



* DarkerAndEdgier: Previous films by Bergman were not exactly optimystic but this one takes the cake.
