Brink of Life pursues Bergman's fascination with the inner lives of women to a maternity ward where three women await the blessed event with mixed attitudes – and fates. Only an unwed teenager who has tried to abort the dreaded newcomer finds herself heading toward a healthy delivery.
The film won awards at Cannes not only for the director (his third in a row) but for the actresses – Ingrid Thulin, Eva Dahlbeck, and Bibi Andersson – whose ensemble work is impressive. The acting holds the charge, and the camera knows it, in this film that is simple in focus, and more clinical than cynical. Not your basic Bergman.
Also Known As: So Close To Life
Robin Hood in Stockholms-Tidningen:
Once again Ingmar Bergman has made an excellent film, quite unlike his earlier works. Wild Strawberries was different from The Seventh Seal, and Brink of Life is different from Wild Strawberries. [...] Brink of Life is not a film of a play. What Bergman actually wants to say is expressed in images, not words. In large close-ups of the face. It is a device widely used in television. A device used in 12 Angry Men.
However, the lack of cinematic imagination, the insularity, concentration on a handful of people, and the narrative's chronological progress, are not down to Bergman: because the screenplay is not his own, it is Ulla Isaksson's. For the first time in a long while he presents in film a screenplay not written by himself. And as this is Ulla Isaksson's first effort in the cinema, one cannot expect any genuine cinematic verve.
But with his interest in television, Bergman has certainly got to grips with this story with enthusiasm, since it suits his current aspirations towards simplicity. It has given him the chance to express himself almost exclusively through the faces of a small number of people. There is no musical score. And the sound effects are minimal. Everything hangs on the actors.
C B-n in Dagens Nyheter:
Brink of Life is Ingmar Bergman's best film. One of the best films that Swedish cinema has ever produced. This time Ingmar Bergman has had the good sense that he has not always shown: he has joined forces with a top class screenwriter. Ulla Isaksson has presented him with an excellent script from which his direction has produced a maximum of effects. Not artificial effects, but true-to-life narration.
Staffan Tjerneld in Expressen:
In effect it is a report from a maternity ward. Doctors, nursing sisters, agony, vomiting, everything is included in Ingmar Bergman's painstaking portrayal. It is one, however, which lacks his customary pictorial virtuosity. Artistically the film is a miscarriage. Dramatically it is abortive and the psychological foundation is surprisingly emaciated.
