Shame (1968) Movie Review Summary

Actors: Liv Ullmann, Max Von Sydow

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Shame (1968)

Shame is an existential allegory directed by Ingmar Bergman, the third of an extraordinary series of films beginning with Persona (1966). Although the setting is nominally the director's home country--Sweden--the film depicts a hypothetical war scenario with unnamed forces fighting one another. Bergman gives a powerful personal dimension to the action by superimposing upon it the story of the collapse of a marriage between two musicians.
