Sawdust and Tinsel 12/11/18

The Criterion Collection

Ingmar Bergman’s ‘sad comedy’ finds desperation and adultery in his favorite milieu, the theater. He also gets to to contrast the self-important thespians with those dubious circus nomads, even as both groups are shunned by civilian society. Ake Grönberg and Harriet Andersson star as married performers considering ditching each other for a more secure future. On Blu-ray from The Criterion Collection.
