Ten years within the marriage of Marianne and Johan.
Ingmar Bergman has given options to the actors and crews to choose between receiving salary or percentage share from the TV series profit. Liv Ullmann chose salary since the earlier movie Cries & Whispers (1972) of Bergman was financial failure, while Erland Josephson and other crews chose percentage share. Scenes from a Marriage (1973) ended up being internationally popular and financially successful. and according to the interview with Liv Ullmann, this was one of the things she regretted in her life.
We're pitiful, self-indulgent cowards that can't connect with reality and are ashamed of ourselves.
The end credits aren't shown on-screen but read by director and writer Ingmar Bergman, while "a beautiful picture of Fårö" is shown (different for each episode). Bergman himself is not credited at all.
A 299 minute version is featured on a 3-disc Criterion Collection DVD, released in 2004.
