Marriage and infidelity have rarely been treated as intelligently as in Liv Ullmanns masterful adaptation of a screenplay by none other than Ingmar Bergman, her ex-director and, intriguingly, her ex-lover. Framed within the reminiscences of an elderly man (Erland Josephson), Faithless tracks the adulterous romance between a conductors wife and a narcissistic filmmaker. Tracking how love unexpectedly emerges, and just as suddenly disappears, Ullmann crafts a fitting tribute to the master himself, enough to keep Bergmania alive and kicking in the hearts of art-film mourners everywhere (Village Voice). A Los Angeles Times review called the film an unqualified triumph.
