Classic Art House Cinema

(Drama, Foreign) Permanent link

Ingmar Bergman’s classic Wild Strawberries is an affectionately drawn portrait of nostalgic pining as the regrets of an aged doctor are exorcised through stark flashbacks and ominous dreams that force the film’s protagonist to rethink his life. Dr. Isak Borg sets out to trek across pastoral Sweden for the city of Lund, where he is to accept an honorary degree for his longtime commitment to medicine. Along the way, the doctor mines the psychic territory of his past by visiting seminal scenes of his life, many of which are painful recollections of regret and missed opportunity. By the end of the trip, Dr. Borg rediscovers a more meaningful sense of who he is as his inevitable death approaches. He will learn that the complicated paths of life are wrought with both beauty and disappointment. The final scene is art house cinema at its finest. Bergman’s other notable films are The Seventh SealFanny and Alexander, and one of his most enigmatic films, Persona.

I have seen most of Ingmar Bergman's movies and I absolutely love all of them. Wild Strawberries is definitely one of Bergman's masterpieces along with The Seventh Seal, the Virgin Spring, Persona, and Cries and Whispers. This is a remarkable movie, so beautiful and so profound -- definitely a shining star of world cinema!
