Sunset of a Clown

In Ingmar Bergmans Sunset of a Clownthe plot is set in a circus environment at the turn of the century, where we meet the circus director, his mistress and her cruel cavalry. Here we get a brilliant study of sexual desire, betrayal, humiliation, frustration and defeat, and a merciless dissection of the relationship between man and woman. The film is considered the first really big Bergman film, and is the film that started the particularly fruitful collaboration between Bergman and the photographer Sven Nykvist.
