metaphor for love
Review by Bill Wallis
Ingmar Berman works at making the intimate universal. In
The Touch, as in Persona and The Passion of Anna, Bergman
studies the pain and joy of an extraordinarily intense love affair
in which personalities merge into bonds which may only be
broken with violent psychic and physical agony. The touch is
. Bergman's metaphor for human love-commitment and concern.
In addition to society's condemnation of the affair, a third
figure (usually a husband, or the memory of one) brings
additional pressure to bear upon the two individuals seeking
meaning in a seemingly void, "bourgeois" existence. This pressure
emphasizes again to the couple the enormous expense and
investment of touching another human being's life with need and
THE STORY IS not simple, even if the plot may seem to
be. Bergman's psychological insight is the key to the greatness of
his art, and with this tool he excels in the art of characterization.
His characters become stories in themselves.
Michael (Elliot Gould), an archeologist and a jew whose family
was victimized in Nazi concentration camps, meets Karen (Bibi
Andersson), the wife of a psychiatrist (Max Von Sydow). After a
series of visits they embark upon an off-and-on affair of two
Michael is shown to be a tortured, lonely man who reacts to
Karen's innocent concern with her family responsibilities with a
nonplussed violence. Karen is slow to agree to be Michael's
mistress (she says no! instinctively the first time he touches
her hand), but once she agrees she is totally committed. She
endures his childish rages and jealous fits, and always comes to
him when he calls.
MICHAEL LEAVES Karen. She follows him to London,
leaving her husband and children. In London she meets Michael's
sister with whom, he lives and (the sister hints) serves as husband.
Karen returns to her family. Some months later Michael
returns and demands a renewal of the relationship. She denies
him. He leaves, disbelieving that her denial will hold firm. Karen
is left on her knees alone by a stream. The circle is complete:
Michael has come and gone bringing great happiness and pain.
Karen's pointof-view dominates the film. Her crises arc shown
in detail. Michael's character seems sketchy and incompletely
motivated when set beside Karen's.
This, augmented by Gould's less-than-exeellent performance as
an actor does not lend Michael's character enough depth or
belicvability. Von Sydow and Andersson are their usual superb, as
arc the smaller characterizations.
BERGMAN IS DIFFICULT to discuss because he is both
intense and ambiguous, intimate and diffuse. In snort,
enormously lyric. He is a lyric poet of the cinema, as compared to
David Lean, who creates epic drama for the screen.
His statements of existence are cyclical patterns of encounter
and loneliness, belief and realization.
Why does an individual involve and commit him or herself?
One is needed and needs, gives deeply and receives the same. In
this poetic story both Karen and Bibi Andersson give more than
they receive from their opposites. But Bergman's message does
not stand on a single performance such as Gould's.
THE SHOW IS so much better than the average American
movie that to say that it is not Bergman's best does not do it
justice. It is excellent, t'cllini, Kazan and Bergman make great
films today. Bergman speaks loudest to me.
