Circa 1907-1909: The lives of a wealthy Swedish family, seen partially through the eyes of two young siblings – Fanny and Alexander.
Philosophical, introspective and touching. The plot follows the up’s and down’s of life in the household, the strange twists and crossroads in which fate can place us. Delves into the subjects of morality, hope, religion, good and evil.
A late masterpiece for the director, featuring a superb cast including a number of Sweden’s most notable theatrical and film actors.
Ingmar Bergman’s most personal work, with many scenes and occurrences based on his own childhood memories. Masterwork use of color and composition, frame by frame.
A must-see film from one of the greatest directors in history. There are two versions of the film, the shorter 188 minutes, and a longer 312 minutes (5 hrs.) version, which was used for a four-part television miniseries.
