We compared the Swedish original text, the 1978 edition, with the film. We did a few cuts but we were not as radical as Bergman."
Fernanda Lapa

Text

Directors are Fernanda Lapa and Cucha Carvalheiro. Fernanda Lapa also plays the leading part of Charlotte.

"In creating this Sonata we had an enormous respect for Bergman's genius, the author who so marvellously created a fascinating gallery of female characters, but we are aware that, as Liv Ullmann stated, if the pianist had been the father, there would not have been a story! 
We compared the Swedish original text, the 1978 edition, with the film. We did a few cuts but we were not as radical as Bergman."
- Fernanda Lapa
