"An archetypal Ingmar Bergman film, and one of his best." - Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

WILD STRAWBERRIES is many viewers' favorite Bergman. Though imitated in countless films, it remains as fresh as ever, thanks to its innovative structure and its immensely moving central performance by veteran actor-director Sjöström. Shifting fluidly among dreams, memories, and fantasies, the film follows 78-year-old Prof. Isak Borg (Sjöström) on a journey through space and time, as he reviews his life while driving from Stockholm to Lund University to receive an honorary degree. In Swedish with English subtitles. New DCP digital restoration. (MR)
