Though we hope you take in most of the films in Entrances and Exits as double features, we especially encourage audiences to enjoy Ingmar Bergman’s CRISIS and SARABAND back to back. Together, the duo provides a fascinating study of the evolution of Bergman’s style and focus. In CRISIS, a young woman named Nelly is living in a quiet town with her foster mother when her biological mother returns to take Nelly back to the city; in SARABAND, Bergman reunites his SCENES FROM A MARRIAGE characters Marianne and Johan, re-examining their turbulent relationship 30 years after their divorce. CRISIS marks the beginning of Bergman’s career-long exploration of intimate relationships, with SARABAND exemplifying his lifetime of accumulated mastery in depicting the complexities of the human experience. Both films, made over 50 years apart, offer rich, character-driven portraits that are quintessentially Bergman.
