Cries and Whispers - 1972 **
What a disappointment. And very strange because this is the second colour Bergman film I've seen and the first was equally dark and unexciting.
On a contrast, all the black and white ones were amazing that I have seen so far. This film was based around illness, and infidelity, and negativity and so it's hardly something you might want to watch if you were hoping for something happy.
It has the same sad and melancholy tones as 'Autumn Sonata' (which was the other colour one I saw). Maybe his films are meant only for b&w.
I couldn't enjoy it, maybe for it's dreadfully depressing storyline.
