Love Without Lovers

Rejected script for a fascinating meta-film. 

“Note: this is the only existent copy in the entire world.”

About the text

Handwritten by Bergman on the last page:

This script was rejected by three impeccably conscientious producers. Their explanations varied but the basic message was the same: it’s impossible to make a movie from this material. Expensive. Would end in catastrophe. Self-destruction.

Eventually, I came to share their opinion and consigned my script to the archives, filed away under “Impractical Visions and Dreams.”

And that was that.
