  • In AUTUMN SONATA, Ingrid Bergman plays Charlotte, a famous concert pianist who hasn't seen her daughter Eva (Liv Ullmann) in seven years when she decides to accept Eva and her husband's invitation to come for a prolonged visit. Also staying with the couple is Eva's younger sister, Helena, who suffers from a degenerative disease, and with whom Charlotte is visibly uncomfortable. Although Eva resents her estranged mother's having never taken much interest in either of her daughters' lives, she longs for a reconciliation and tries her best to please Charlotte at first. But after an evening of drink and reminiscences, emotions run amok, and Charlotte finds herself accused of the most severe parental shortcomings, which include being responsible for one daughter's chronic depression and the other's disability. Often considered one of the lesser works of Bergman's later period, AUTUMN SONATA is actually a compassionate and often insightful exploration of a strained relationship between parent and child--a relationship, however, that may not be quite past salvation yet. Ingrid Bergman's only collaboration with compatriot (and namesake) Ingmar Bergman also turned out to be her final movie role.
