Cast: 7 male, 4 female
In Winter Light Bergman brings together a number of his favourite themes; the nature of existence, God’s silence, and the meaning of love. It is the story of Tomas Ericsson, pastor of a small rural Swedish church, as he deals with the doubts, despairs and crisis of faith caused by the death of his wife. Fisherman Jonas is obsessed with the evil in the world, but Tomas is unable to offer him any comfort, and while schoolteacher Marta loves Tomas, she is met only by his coldness and hostility. Winter Light is about the search for answers where there are none.
