"Though it has its darker moments, no Bergman venture has ever been so warm, so understanding, so forgiving of human foibles." — Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

Fanny and Alexander  (1982)

Warmed through with sentiment and turn-of-the-century, candlelit interiors, director Ingmar Bergman’s most autobiographical work unfolds through the perspective of 10-year-old Alexander, whose wealthy family, the Ekdahls, runs a theater in their small Swedish town.  Sweeping through seasons and across holidays, marriages, reunions and deaths, Bergman glides between harsh reality and a curious magic and imagination.
