In this film featuring the remarkable cinematography of Sven Nykvist, Bergman examines the relationship between three sisters. Agnes, a spinster lives with her housekeeper and is dying of cancer, while she is dying she is visited by her sisters, Karin and Maria. They quickly become entangled in old feelings of jealousy and selfishness. Agnes, tortured by cancer, is still able to transcend her sisters' pettiness to remember moments of staggering beauty in their past, but her sisters remain distant as Agnes' suffering reminds them of life's scars and their deep lack of connection. Only the maid Anna, who is deeply religious is able to comfort Agnes in her extremity. After her death, Agnes returns to the living for a short moment, and in a dream-like sequence she asks her family for love. Cries and Whispers revisits Bergman's personal themes, the isolation of the individual, the quest for meaning in existence, and the conflict between the necessity of human relationships and their ultimate futility. Sven Nykvist's acute color cinematography captures the claustrophobia of the sisters home, using intense reds and whites
