Faithless (Wiarołomni)
written by Ingmar Bergman

Faithless is a drama of infidelity, based on Bergman's own life during the autumn of 1949. Marianne is happily married to Markus, a successful conductor. They have a nine-year-old daughter, Isabelle. Markus's best friend is David. Twice divorced, David is often at Marianne and Markus' apartment, and is Isabelle's favourite storyteller. One night, while Markus is away, David visits the flat as usual. But the sexual and emotional attraction that Marianne and David have for one another changes what was once a safe, platonic friendship. An intense affair develops, with devastating consequences. Within this complex set of relations, no one is innocent, people manipulate those they love, secrets are revealed, and everyone is faithless.
