  • Fanny and Alexander

    1982. Sweden/Germany/France. Written and directed by Ingmar Bergman. With Gunn Wallgren, Allan Edwall, Ewa Fröling, Bertil Guve. “Fanny and Alexander was Bergman’s warm, generous swan song to the cinema (though in fact he made several films after it). Set in turn-of-the-century provincial Sweden, it’s at once a family epic, a portrait of the artist, a ghost story, a fairy tale, a tribute to the theater, and a summing up of the themes that haunted his career. Only here, Bergman’s demons are sumptuously transformed into artifice and play” (David Ansen, Newsweek). NYFCC Best Foreign Film, 1982. In Swedish; English subtitles. 188 min.
