"Wild Strawberries" ("Smultronstället," 1957) - One of Director Ingmar Berman's Greatest Films - Swedish Drama Starring Victor Sjöström, Bibi Andersson, Ingrid Thulin, and Gunnar Björnstrand

Recommended Posts

"Wild Strawberries" is a simple story, beautifully told, about an old man, highly respected in his community but lacking in human warmth and affection, who finds a way to reestablish his connection with this family by revisiting his youth. It is a story of longing, missed opportunities, love lost and second chances. It is a lovely and quietly brilliant film that brought tears to my eyes. Victor Sjöström is outstanding in his final screen performance as Professor Isak Borg, the old man recalling his past, and Bibi Andersson is delightful in her dual roles as Sara. Beautiful  Ingrid Thulin gives an outstanding performance as the old man's daughter-in-law, Marianne. I highly recommend this film.
