Jewish-American brothers Abel and Max Rosenberg, and Max’s ex-wife Manuela Rosenberg had a trapeze act in a circus touring through Europe up until a month ago when a wrist injury to Max sidelined the act. The three remained in Berlin, Germany generally depressed with rampant inflation leading to Abel taking up the bottle to cope. The Jewish are also being blamed for many of society’s problems, but Abel fears no reprisal against himself if he does nothing wrong. Abel and Manuela, the latter who ended up living in a rooming house on her own while working in a cabaret, are reunited when Abel has to inform her that Max committed suicide by a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Feeling at a loss both professionally with the act no more and emotionally both due to Max’s death, Abel and Manuela turn to each other for comfort and support as the only person the other truly has. Abel’s life becomes even more complicated when Police Inspector Bauer, who handled Max’s suicide case, questions Abel about a series of other mysterious deaths in the last month in the vicinity of where he lived, some of the people he admits to knowing if only by face. In the process, Abel begins to believe that he may be being set up to take the fall solely for being Jewish. But as Manuela tries to set up some sort of life so that the two of them can be together, Abel begins to get caught up in the unwitting circumstances which may lead to the same fate as Max and the others Abel was shown in the morgue.
Plot: Berlin, 1923. Following the suicide of his brother, American circus acrobat Abel Rosenberg attempts to survive while facing unemployment, depression, alcoholism and the social decay of Germany during the Weimar Republic.

Ingmar Bergman bogging himself down in the origins of Nazism.
Ingmar Bergman didn’t always make good films. He generally scripted his films himself, and he obviously didn’t notice or care when his scripts were not very good but filmed them anyway. Although not a bad film, this is not an altogether good script.

David Carradine as Abel Rosenberg, an American Jew, comes to Berlin in October 1923 and finds his brother Max dead in his bed having shot his brains out. That’s how it begins.

The brothers were circus trapeze artitsts and out of work, and the dead brother had a girl friend (separated, Liv Ullmann,) who tries to take care of Abel, which is not very easy, since he is constantly misbehaving and spends every day and night drinking. The local police inspector, (Gert Froebe) with whom he got in touch concerning his brother’s suicide, consults Abel over a number of mysterious and atrocious murders, and Abel gets into a paranoic state believing himself to be a suspect, which doesn’t make his own situation any better.

The character of the film is consistently depressive, and the occasional interesting moments are the insights into the extreme and absurd conditions of Berlin and Germany in 1923, which gave rise to Hitler. This makes it a fascinating time documentary. The cabaret scenes lift the show to a bizarre level of gleeful decadence, but they also gradually go from bad to worse, especially when they are interrupted by power cuts and brutal razzias by hoodlums.

Bergman made this film in Germany while he was in exile from Sweden, chased out of the country by clumsy tax authorities, and he admits himself in his autobiography that he like many Swedes were ardent Nazis before the war. So there are some interesting explanatory excuses and motives for the film.

It emanates into a Kafkaesque nightmare into an archive of terrible human experimentation, definitely heralding Nazism, and ultimately into a very dramatic finale with Heinz Bennent, another cavalier of Liv Ullman’s, which gives the film its meaning, but you have to wait for it through many long and absurd scenes, many without reason or meaning.

One of Bergman’s lesser films…
I say this with a heavy heart as I love Bergman and his films, but while it has good points and it is at least better than All These Women The Serpent’s Egg didn’t do it for me. It is an incredibly well made film, I cannot deny that, Sven Nykvist’s cinematography is wonderful and adds so much to the atmosphere. The scenery is similarly evocative. On top of that, the opening sequence is a brilliant one and promises so much, Liv Ullman shows once more why she was and is one of Sweden’s finest actresses and Heinz Bennett makes for an effectively sinister villain without it being too stereotypical.

The Serpent’s Egg however is while quite different and interesting a disappointment, especially considering that we are talking about one of cinema’s greatest directors here. Bergman does seem out of his depth, introducing some interesting ideas but not developing them enough and there are not enough I feel of his distinctive trademarks. The story is rather convoluted with an ending that comes across as rather heavy-handed, some intriguing ideas that come across as half-baked and a brothel scene that is among my least favourite scenes ever in a Bergman film. The dialogue is rambling and banal and David Carradine’s performance is overwrought and stiff on the whole.

All in all, has its good and fascinating moments but one of Bergman’s lesser films. 5/10 Bethany Cox
