  1. ammar's rating of the film The Serpent's Egg

  2. El Biffo's rating of the film The Serpent's Egg

    Truly painful. The DVD has a commentary by the late David Carradine, who starts out by saying "This is a difficult film to watch." Bergman's most horrifying film.

  3. Zach Closs's rating of the film The Serpent's Egg

    The tepid reputation is baffling. "The Serpent's Egg" is an organic, often nightmarish odyssey into the bowels of a poverty stricken, morally bankrupt postwar Germany. Glides on Bergman's boundless empathy for his characters and atmospheric photography. Carradine isn't miscast; his character is vitally incompatible with his environment. Ullmann is heartbreaking.

  4. AdrianM.'s rating of the film The Serpent's Egg

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film The Serpent's Egg

    Film injustement méprisé, d'une âpre beauté, saisissant de bout en bout ! www.cinefiches.com

  6. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film The Serpent's Egg

    What was Bergman thinking- this was awful!

  7. ermete polpette's rating of the film The Serpent's Egg

  8. Ethan's rating of the film The Serpent's Egg

    Ingmar Bergman tackling German expressionist cinema. The films he made in his German exile were quite interesting. Plus David Carradine in a Bergman film, what more could you ask for?

  9. ARNMG's rating of the film The Serpent's Egg

    its completely a fassbinder film

  10. Michael Stephenson's rating of the film The Serpent's Egg

    What an odd film. Mostly flat with a handful of interesting moments.

  11. Mighty Quinn's rating of the film The Serpent's Egg

    Bergman's second English film is one of his largest productions and one of his more unusual. Carradine plays a circus performer struggling to get by in the twilight days of the crumbling Wiemar republic. His sister in law played by Liv Ullman is the more optimistic, but even she is worn down spiritually when they stay together. It's atypical because the conflict seems more literal (Nazism in Germany), but I liked it

  12. Nuno Barros's rating of the film The Serpent's Egg

    Filme muito pouco Bergmaniano, o que talvez se explique pela sua incursão em produções alemãs, depois de abandonar a Suécia por questões fiscais, quer na realização, quer nos cenários e um argumento que se desloca do universo íntimo e pessoal para o das grandes causas. Um filme cheio de surpresas (não esperaria ver um actor como David Carradine num filme do Bergman) com a melhor interpretação que vi de Liv Ullmann.

  13. rllr's rating of the film The Serpent's Egg

    Made me think about Céline, Tardi and Kafka in a blender. Surely the most un-Bergman entry in his filmography, but the work of a master nonetheless.

  14. Khashayar Mohammadi's rating of the film The Serpent's Egg

    Only Bergman film that truly disappointed me.

  15. cbg/cbg's rating of the film The Serpent's Egg

    Loved this movie! Also, a fun little tidbit: Fassbinder loved this film and shot the entirety of Berlin Alexanderplatz on the same sets that Bergman built for this film!

  16. MATT's rating of the film The Serpent's Egg

    I really like this film. Its completly underated

  17. sister chromatid's rating of the film The Serpent's Egg

    Such a change of pace from Bergman's other works. This was the first film of his that I had watched, and having seen a number of his other films since, I had actually forgotten that Serpent's Egg was his! Love it just the same. It retains the same ethereal quality that his others do.

  18. viivahate's rating of the film The Serpent's Egg

    "I wake up from a nightmare and find that real life is worse than the dream."

  19. NEONBEAR's rating of the film The Serpent's Egg

    misunderstood i suppose. i kept my distance because i never heard anything too positive. but here i am, fresh off finally seeing it. what an excellent movie.

  20. Koalacanth's rating of the film The Serpent's Egg

    The scene with the two prostitutes and the African-American guy is golden.

  21. Criteriamor's rating of the film The Serpent's Egg

    Brilliant, horrifying, and relevant! The idea that Carradine did a terrible acting job has spread like a virus and it is completely wrong.

  22. Wortzik's rating of the film The Serpent's Egg

    Imagine this film with Dustin Hoffman as the leading man, as it was intended to be? It would be better. A good film but very minor if compared with other Bergman classics.

  23. fortytwoshadesofblue's rating of the film The Serpent's Egg

    This film was very different to other Bergman films, The set designs and the cinematography were a lot more complicated. It was fun to see david carradine playing a jewish acrobat. A very weird film, as if to convince you to lose all hope in humanity. A prequel to WWII

  24. Daniella's rating of the film The Serpent's Egg

    Si no fuera por la pésima actuación de Carradine este sería un mejor film. la dirección de Bergman pasa casi inadvertida. It's like a Bergmanized B movie... and against my will I'm lovin' it!!!
