Fanny and Alexander
February 2, 2013
The joys and sorrows of a bourgeois Swedish family around the turn-of-the-century are told through the eyes of ten-year-old Alexander. The children must live through the death of their father and their mother’s re-marriage to a cold-hearted clergyman in what is considered legendary director Ingmar Bergman’s warmest and most autobiographical film. Winner of four Academy Awards, including Best Foreign Film, this thematically simple and visually stunning film was set to be Bergman’s last project—bringing all the emotional intensity to light in what is one of his culminating works.
