Bergman’s Saraband is on the horizon

One of director Ingmar Bergman’s most recent films, the 2003 Saraband is coming to DVD from sony Pictures Home Entertainment this year.

Marianne and Johan meet again after thirty years without contact, when Marianne suddenly feels a need to see her ex-husband again. She decides to visit Johan at his old summer house. Also living at the summer house are Johan’s son Henrik and Henrik’s daughter Karin. Henrik is giving his daughter cello lessons and already sees her future as staked out. Relations between father and son are very strained, but both are protective of Karin. They are all still mourning Anna, Henrik’s much-loved wife, who died two years earlier, yet who, in many ways, remains present among them. Marianne soon realizes that things are not all as they should be, and she finds herself unwillingly drawn into a complicated and upsetting power struggle.

The disc comes with a behind the scenes featurettes and will arrive on January 10th, 2006 with a suggested retail price of $29.95.
