CRIES AND WHISPERS
VISKNIGAR OCH ROP
1972, Janus Films, 106 min, Sweden, Dir: Ingmar Bergman

Amid the blood-red backgrounds of a turn-of-the-century mansion and the atmosphere of a dream, Liv Ullmann and Ingrid Thulin keep a death watch over spinster sister Harriet Andersson, while flashbacks depict the disappointed lives, meaningless marriages and sisterly conflicts, with a final moving image suggesting what has been lost. In Swedish with English subtitles.


HOUR OF THE WOLF
VARGTIMMEN
1968, Park Circus, 90 min, Sweden, Dir: Ingmar Bergman

Artist Max von Sydow and wife Liv Ullmann take a trip to a desolate island and quickly become troubled by eerie visions - are they hallucinations or something more sinister? Ingmar Bergman combines elements of the horror film with his usual preoccupation with relationships in crisis to create a stunning work. In Swedish with English subtitles.
