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

Even though this movie is obviously considered as a massive masterpiece, to be honest, I really had a hard time to care for the damned thing and, I guess, this one belongs to the category 'misunderstood masterpiece’. What I mean by that is that I was able to see all the craft behind it, I could see it was obviously a work of Art but I'm afraid I didn't really get it. Basically, it was not really... 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)

" 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"

Elokuvapäiväkirja 2018 (216 movies items)

"10.2 Helpoiten lähestyttävä Bergman tähän astisista, muttei lainkaan huono. Menee omissa kirjoissani jopa kärkikolmikkoon Seitsemännen sinetin ja Mansikkapaikan ohella. Unenomaisen surrealistinen ja satumainen tarina, jonka jokainen otos on tarkkaan harkittu ja maalausmainen. Kolmen tunnin kesto ei tunnu missään. Begmanilaiseen tyyliin kaunistelematon kertomus elämästä, jossa tällä kertaa on keskiössä se, miten kahden lapsen perheidylli sirpaloituu pieniksi palasiksi."
