A timeless meditation upon relationships between women, men, art and love
Lyrical, Passionate and enigmatic. Faithless begins with a writer named Bergman summonig his muse, in the form of a memory. Marianne (Lena Endre) appears to Bergman as he sits down to write about a love affair of long ago. As she discusses ideas for the story, she is transformed into the main character of the film he is now writing.
Marianne is a successful actress happily married to Markus (Thomas Hanzon) and devoted to her young daughter. A friendship with a film director develops into passion as the two yield to temptation and indulge in an affair in Paris that continues back at home. Eventually Markus, who has suspected the affair confronts the faithless pair and their marriage, a friendship and a family are threatened to be destroyed.
Despite the film's dark themes, Endre triumps with the radiant performance... a woman whose passion and intelligence makes for a story of unforgettable emotional power.
