Comments on Bergman

Comments on Bergman

Dear Sir,

A few comments on Simon Wilson's review of Bergman's "Scenes from a Marriage".

This was originally six one-hour plays for Swedish television.

Therefore it has been cut in half for the cinema.

These plays were also shown on British television with dubbing rather than (inadaquate) sub-titles.

The original format gave greater scope and depth to the interactions: there was less head on confrontation between two people.

In shun, as conceived and directed by Bergman the "flawed masterpiece" which Simon Wilson notes was, if not perfect, at least less flawed.
