Scenes from a Marriage (Swedish: Scener ur ett äktenskap) is a 1973 Swedish film written and directed by Ingmar Bergman. The story follows Marianne and Johan (played by Liv Ullmann and Erland Josephson), a married couple whose relationship eventually reaches divorce after several fluctuations. Their relationship continues after their divorce and they cannot keep apart.

Scenes from a Marriage was first released as a TV mini-series of 6 episodes spanning 295 minutes. It was then cut down to 168 minutes for cinematic release. When released on VHS and laserdisc, the 168 minute version was used. In the current Criterion DVD version, both the theatrical version and the full length, miniseries version are included.
