A bourgeois idyll of a married couple, Karin and Andreas, is interrupted by the arrival of David, an American archaeologist working on an excavation of an old church. It is not long before they find themselves confronting a raging passion. Although David who appears as a force of nature and dutiful Karin do not speak the same language and are embarrassed of their bodies this unconventional relationship reveals a role of senses. „The Touch“ is first Bergman‘s film in English presenting his ability to highlight the major themes of human being and mastership of actors.
