backtrack; Nattvardsgästerna (1963)

A00

Reduction, clarity, consistency. Bergman’s relentless austerity, Sven Nykvist’s magic camera, and the quiet intensity of the actors elevates this contrived – even ridiculous – story from intellectual concept to high art.

In my most demanding book of restraint and absence.
