Höstsonaten (Autumn Sonata). 1978. Sweden. Written and directed by Ingmar Bergman. In Swedish, English subtitles. 99 min.

With Ingrid Bergman, Liv Ullman, Lena Nyman, Halvar Björk. After seven years of separation, an internationally famous concert pianist (Ingrid Bergman) returns home to visit her long-suffering daughter (Liv Ullman), who has a bagful of bones to pick with her neglectful, self-centered mother. Simmering resentment explodes into a night of mutual recrimination. A difficult collaboration for both director and star, Autumn Sonata blends painful material lifted from the lives of both Bergmans with plotting from a Hollywood melodrama. Courtesy Janus Films. Selected by Pia Lindström.
