Overview

Liv Ullmann plays Dr. Jenny Isakson, a psychiatrist who is taking a vacation while her husband Dr. Erik Isakson Sven Lindberg is elsewhere. Haunted by visions of an old woman, Jenny suffers from profound, inexplicable depression. Desperately in search of a escape from her doldrums, she has an affair with married doctor Tomas Jacobi Erland Josephson. This only serves to spark an attack of hysteria for Jenny. Again visited by hallucinations of the old woman, she attempts suicide. While hovering between life and death, she imagines she sees all the people who've been influential in her life, and rails against them for causing her neuroses. Only while recovering does she learn who the spectral old woman is and why she is undergoing so harrowing an emotional experience. Like his later Scenes From a Marriage, Bergman's Face to Face Ansikte mot ansikte originated as a multipart TV series, which was then pared down into a two-hour-plus feature film.

    Fascinating Film, TERRIBLE DVD - DON'T BUY IT !

    Face to Face is a fascinating (though difficult) film, OLIVE FILMS RELEASE OF "Face to Face" is DISGRACEFUL. Soft and faded, It looks like a bad VHS TRANSFER FROM THE 80's and the sound is simply awful. This is an important film. You can't take a print in terrible condition (like this one obviously was) and just throw it out onto DVD with no digital picture or sound restoration. I was an Associate Producer and Film to Tape transfer supervisor for Criterion in the early 90s and the first thing I did was scour every possible place on the planet for the best print. If Olive Films is going to license important and long unavailable films like "Face to Face" effectively making them unavailable to Criterion or ANYONE ELSE, they should at least put in the care, time and effort that the film deserves. I have been waiting for F2F for many years and frankly, I wish I had not spent 29.00 on this DEPLORABLE release. Please BOYCOTT this release and call or E-Mail OLIVE FILMS to tell them why.
