Bergman/Allen: Marriage Under The Influence

MUBI Special

Ingmar Bergman and Woody Allen. Master and disciple. It’s widely known the profound effect the work of the Swedish Master made on the American filmmaker at a very young age. His films became deeply influenced by Bergman’s thematic obsessions and formal idiosyncrasy. We invite you to discover the echoes and resonances between these two explorations of marriage so intimately linked.

Husbands and Wives

Woody Allen United States, 1992

We love Allen’s films, and we love them twice as much when they are an open love letter to his madly admired Bergman. Like this clever and bitter scan of two collapsing relationships, moving homage to the paradigmatic Scenes From A Marriage. Hysterical, utterly insightful and one of Woody’s finest.

Scenes from a Marriage (Theatrical Version)

Ingmar Bergman Sweden, 1973

It’s an immense pleasure for us to present a double bill of two masters so intimately linked. First up is one of the major voices of modern cinema, the late Ingmar Bergman, an implacable auteur whose ability to dissect human nature, and in this case marriage, is rather superlative. Guess who’s next.
