Shame

Overview

Trained and employed as classical violinists, they make a modest living raising and selling lingonberries, though they continue to play their instruments.

Overview

Shame demonstrates the futility of escaping the consequences of war. In 1971, the Rosenbergs, Jan (Max von Sydow) and Eva (Liv Ullmann), have retreated to an island off the coast of their unnamed country, which is embroiled in a civil conflict. Trained and employed as classical violinists, they make a modest living raising and selling lingonberries, though they continue to play their instruments. When a plane carrying soldiers crashes on the island, Jan and Eva see their lives changed in an instant as soldiers from both sides of the conflict overrun the island and fighting breaks out. The couple is arrested and charged with collaborating with the rebel forces. Colonel Jacobi (Gunnar Bjornstrand), an old friend of the couple, is in charge of the army defending the island, and he agrees to have the couple released if Eva will have sex with him. Shortly after Jan learns of Eva's betrayal, rebel forces gain the upper hand and order Jan to execute Jacobi, which he readily agrees to do. Not sure which side is safe to throw in with, the couple agree to leave on an early morning boat for another island, which is presumably sheltered from the conflict.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Tom Wiener
The middle segment of Ingmar Bergman's late '60s trilogy of films set on the island of Fårö, Shame is less enigmatic than Hour of the Wolf and more harrowing than The Passion of Anna. It's impossible to think that Bergman wasn't in some way affected by the worldwide debate over American involvement in Vietnam when he wrote the script for Shame, though its politics are neutral. Bergman is much more interested in exploring the inability of civilians to get out of the way of a war and what the consequences are when it does touch them. Precisely because Jan and Eva Rosenberg take no sides in the civil conflict they are trying to avoid, their basic reaction to danger is one of pure survival. Whatever side is winning is the side they are on, whether it means granting sexual favors or killing an old friend. With those two acts, the Rosenbergs betray each other and leave themselves morally stripped bare. By the final scenes, on a boat moving through waters choked with corpses, Jan and Eva are almost zombies. When Eva tries to recall a remark that would comfort her, her memory fails her; it's one of the most powerful scenes in the career of one of the world's greatest filmmakers.
