“The sum total of my life as a filmmaker.”
—Ingmar Bergman on Fanny and Alexander

“Astonishingly beautiful….At the end, I was subdued and yet exhilarated; something had happened to me that was outside language, that was spiritual.”—Roger Ebert on Fanny and Alexander

Through the eyes of 10-year-old Alexander, we witness the delights and conflicts of the Ekdahl family, a sprawling bourgeois clan in turn-of-the-20th-century Sweden. Bergman intended Fanny and Alexander as his swan song, and it is the legendary director’s warmest and most autobiographical film, a four-time Academy Award–winning triumph that combines his trademark melancholy and emotional intensity with immense joy and sensuality. With Harriet Andersson, Pernilla Allwin, Pernilla August, Gunnar Björnstrand, Bertil Guve, Erland Josephson, and Lena Olin. (188 mins., theatrical version; 35mm)
