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.

Yes, it is long and slow, and may put modern action viewers off, but every image is worth seeing. The entire film has a dre... read more

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. This movie is how I expected it be be- Dull, Boring and very very off-putting. Well that's just one way of saying it. It still wasn't as bad as 'Persona', although not far off. First it already started off by having something I absolutely dread in a movie; A ... read more

A classic

I already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since it is a real classic, I was quite eager to give it a second chance. Well, even if I was able to enjoy it slightly more this time around, to be honest, I still had a hard time to care for the damned thing though. Fist of all, I was surprised by how little I actually remembered this movie which wasn’t really a good sign. It’s inter... read more

Description: Through the wide eyes of ten-year-old Alexander, we witness the great delights and conflicts of the Ekdahl family, a sprawling, convivial bourgeois clan living in turn-of-the-century Sweden. 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)

" Notes: I watched again this movie recently and I was surprised by how little I actually remembered this movie which wasn’t really a good sign. It’s interesting that the only thing I did remember was when Alexander, Fanny and their mother went to live with Edvard Vergerus but, somehow, I think it does make sense. Indeed, even if Vergerus was pretty much a dreadful guy, he was however the only fully developed character in this whole story and, therefore, the only one who made an impression o"

" Date: 4/5/2020 Viewed: Criterion Channel First viewing Note: I watched the Theatrical version I remember hearing about this movie growing up, but I never saw it until now. I was also worried that I was not going to like this movie because the movie is at least 3 hours long and people told me that this movie moves at a snail-like pace. After finally watching this movie from start to finish, I really did enjoy it. My favorite thing about this movie was the cinematography and atmosphere beca"
