Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art says
Through a Glass Darkly is the first entry in Bergman's loose thematic 'Faith Trilogy', with each film acting as a different meditation on the notion of the silence of God.

In the film (which would earn Bergman his second Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 1962), a young woman, Karin (Harriet Andersson), travels with her brother, father, and husband to a remote island for a short holiday after her release from a psychiatric institution. As the relationships between the group begin to fray, Karin slips further and further out of reality.
Bergman's spiritual concerns here are focused pointedly and imaginatively, as in Karin's visions of God as a prurient spider. Harriet Andersson gives another complex and formidable performance in the lead role, supported ably as always by Bergman regulars Max von Sydow and Gunnar Bj├Ârnstrand.
