Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Gregory Baird
Marital bliss is torn apart by infidelity in Faithless, a hauntingly dark Swedish drama directed by Liv Ullmann from a script by her mentor, Ingmar Bergman. The simple story focuses on an actress Lene Endre married to a conductor Thomas Hanzon who has an affair with a close friend Krister Henriksson, but the telling is as important as the tale itself. The narrative unfolds as a recollection imparted to an aged writer; the actress herself tells it to him, though he seems to have conjured up her imaginary presence as a muse. The writer, named Bergman, is played by the great filmmaker's friend and colleague Erland Josephson. Events are half described in monologue and half dramatized, a familiar Bergman technique that gives the story the quality of a memory. What we see and hear is the story of a premeditated and carefully planned extramarital affair, involving deception that is nothing short of breathtaking. All the characters' lives are completely undone as a result, yet at the heart of this story is not a moral but a mystery as profound as the pain and psychological violence to which the characters subject each other. Ingmar Bergman's tumultuous personal life seems to have inspired Faithless, and Ullmann's years of collaboration and romantic involvement with him undoubtedly contribute to her confident grasp of the material. The result is a film of stillness and silence punctuated by agony and grief, as powerful as it is ultimately disturbing.
All Movie Guide - Jason Clark
Though directed by the prolific Liv Ullmann, Trolosa feels every bit the film Ingmar Bergman would have made in his prime. An intense look at the ramifications of a lustful affair and the effect it has on a family, this picture suffers from a number of indulgences of which Bergman's detractors accused him. Unlike many pictures about divorce, however, Trolosa gets to the subject's ugly core -- how even the smallest lie can have devastating consequences. The central device of a Bergman stand-in isn't always successful, but it provides actress Leah Endre some of her most startling scenes. Endre is effortlessly believable and moving as the unfaithful narrator, continually finding the right note for every scene.
Washington Post - Desson Howe
What's best about Faithless is its honesty, its lack of desire to ingratiate itself with the audience.
Boston Globe - Jay Carr
Ullmann's film is an achievement of heart and consequence, as full of integrity as Bergman, yet demonstrating more mercy.
Los Angeles Times - Kevin Thomas
Complex, challenging and richly rewarding, it glows with the kind of wrenchingly selfless portrayals that are the hallmark of the Bergman classics.

What's best about Faithless is its honesty, its lack of desire to ingratiate itself with the audience.

    True to life, but could be 15 minutes shorter

    Faithless is an extremely accurate depiction of an affair and it's after-effects. The story must have been taken from Bergman's and Ulmann's personal experiences, because one totally believes it is real. This could not have been imagined by a writer. The story is interestingly told from the outset. The performances, most notably by the beautiful female lead, are flawless. The second half of the film, however, should have been edited and made tighter. Overall, a worthy and recommended picture. One that could only have been made in Europe.
