Originally made as a six part television series, Ingmar Bergman’s Scenes From A Marriage was alleged to cause the divorce rate in Sweden to nearly double in the year that the series was released. The story gives an unflinching insight into the loneliness, doubt, despair and confusion felt by Marianne (Liv Ullmann), a lawyer, when she discovers her fickle husband, Johan (Erland Josephson), a professor, is having an affair.  Featuring rapid and articulate monologues by few cast and a hyper-realism and naturalist style, the film was praised receiving numerous awards including a BAFTA for Ullmann and a Golden Globe for Best Foreign Film.
