Three cinematic titans - Ingmar Bergman, Ingrid Bergman, and Liv Ullmann - teamed up for the first and only time and worked wonders in AUTUMN SONATA, a searing, thorny study of mother-daughter relationships. As a concert pianist who visits her estranged daughter?s home after years apart, Ingrid Bergman rules the screen, delivering a performance of tremendous power that?s perfectly complemented by the quieter intensity of effervescent co-lead Liv Ullmann. Together, these two woman ignite under Ingmar Bergman?s typically austere direction, making for a film that?s a standout in these artists? legendary filmographies.

She also lead THE EMIGRANTS (Oscar nom) and THE NEW WORLD and received an Academy Honorary Award.
