WILD STRAWBERRIES
SMULTRONSTÄLLET
1957, Janus Films, 91 min, Sweden, Dir: Ingmar Bergman

Bergman at his finest: An aging professor (played to perfection by Victor Sjostrom, himself a great director of the silent era) reflects on the bitter dregs of his life as he approaches his final day of reckoning. To this day few filmmakers have gazed as deeply into the human heart as Bergman did here. Co-starring the sublime Ingrid Thulin as Sjostrom’s disillusioned daughter-in-law and Gunnar Björnstrand as his bitter son. With Bibi Andersson. In Swedish with English subtitles.

A LESSON IN LOVE
EN LEKTION I KÄRLEK
1954, Janus Films, 95 min, Sweden, Dir: Ingmar Bergman

One of Bergman’s most satisfying marital comedies stars the droll and sparkling duo of Eva Dahlbeck and Gunnar Björnstrand as a couple deep into their married years and seeking fresh pastures. A gynecologist (Björnstrand) falls for one of his patients (Yvonne Lombard), while his wife (Dahlbeck) flounces off to Copenhagen to renew her fling with a sculptor (Åke Grönberg). Deftly interspersing scenes of farce with interludes of tranquil reflection, A LESSON IN LOVE serves as a cocktail before the full-blown comic brilliance of SMILES OF A SUMMER NIGHT the following year.


Both films in Swedish with English subtitles.
