A story of four women's search for spiritual peace. Agnes, a spinster who lives with her housekeeper, is dying of cancer, and is visited one last time by her two sisters, Karin and Maria. These two become entangled in feelings of jealousy, manipulation and selfishness.

I thought this was a rather moody, slow movie. Did not care for so many pauses that were apparently used for segues. Also the gratuitous nudity did not move the story along. Some artsy films I like, but I cannot recommend this one.

An exploration of time, death, dying and relationships. I really liked the bell sounds and the way the slowing down and occasional stopping of time was portrayed. Not cheerful by any means but for those who like human drama of the deep and difficult kind this will be of great interest.

Bleak, sad, despairing

Sorry, Ingmar, you could have done a better job. Although it is beautifully filmed it is far inferior to "Anna's Passion" or "Fanny and Alexander."
