Loosely based on an episode in the life of its writer, Ingmar Bergman, this powerful and emotionally compelling drama about three adults caught in a love triangle was directed - to great critical acclaim - by Liv Ullmann. Marianne (Lena Endre) is happily married to Markus (Thomas Hanzon), a successful conductor. They have a nine-year-old daughter, Isabelle (Michelle Gylemo). Markus's best friend is David (Krister Henriksson). Twice divorced, David is often at Marianne and Markus' apartment, and is Isabelle's favourite storyteller. One night, while Markus is away, David visits the flat as usual. But the sexual and emotional attraction that Marianne and David have for one another changes what was once a safe, platonic friendship. An intense affair develops, with devastating consequences... Within this complex set of relations, no one is innocent, people manipulate those they love, secrets are revealed, and everyone it appears - is faithless.
