Ingmar Bergman's 'Nora,' a distillation of Ibsen's masterpiece, is a riveting tale of a seemingly conventional woman, struggling and then coming to terms with her life as a doll-wife in a traditional marriage. Out of the shadows of deceit, blackmail, and betrayal, Nora rises to a new consciousness of herself as a woman in a man's world. Through the microcosm of Nora's "doll house" marriage, both Bergman and Ibsen pose crucial questions about the role of gender in modern society.
