Dickensian drama & fairy tale

Perhaps one of Bergman’s least known movies, this I consider to be one of his best.

This is an autobiographical tale of a brother and sister born in an aristocratic family in Sweden. The story is part Dickensian drama, part mystical fairy tale.

This is now my fourth Ingmar Bergman film I have watched, I think this will be my last, as I have not become a fan of Bergman's work at all.

Ingmar Bergman intended Fanny and Alexander (Fanny och Alexander) to be his swan song, and it is the legendary filmmaker's warmest and most autobiographical film, a triumph that combines his trademark melancholy and emotional intensity with an immense joyfulness and sensuality. The Criterion Collection is proud to present this winner of the 1984 Academy Award® for Best Foreign Language Film, accompanied by rarely seen introductions by Bergm ... (more)
