Shame (R1969) - (Ingmar Bergman) Italian two-sheet

Shame (R1969) - (dir: Ingmar Bergman) Italian two-sheet poster

This is a 39" x 54" Italian two-sheet poster for a 1969 rerelease of the 1968 Ingmar Bergman film Shame written by Ingmar Bergman and starring Liv Ullmann as Eva Rosenberg. Plot summary: A short time into an imaginary future in Sweden, Eva and Jan Rosenberg [Max von Sydow] move to a farm on a rural island to get away from a civil war. They are apolitical people who have no contact with society through radio or telephone. On a visit to a town they get the news troops are coming to the area as they procure wine and goods to take back home. When they return the two are interrogated by both sides of the armed conflict. Afterwards they are visited regularly by a Colonel Jacobi [Gunnar Bjornstrand], who bribes Eva for sexual favors. These events, disruptive to their relationship, tend to bring out Eva's heroic humanitarian qualities and Jan's cowardly indifference.

Cast and crew: Ingmar Bergman, Liv Ullman, Max von Sydow, Sigge Furst, Gunnar Bjornstrand, Birgitta Valberg, Hans Alfredson, Ingvar Kjellson, Frank Sundstrom, Ulf Johansson, Vilgot Sjoman
