Traveling to accept an honorary degree, Professor Isak Borg—masterfully played by veteran director Victor Sjöström—is forced to face his past, come to terms with his faults, and make peace with the inevitability of his approaching death.
“A surprisingly optimistic and affirmative movie about getting old.” – Scott Tobias, AV Club
Through flashbacks and fantasies, dreams and nightmares, Wild Strawberries dramatizes one man’s remarkable voyage of self-discovery. This richly humane masterpiece, full of iconic imagery, is a treasure from the golden age of arthouse cinema and one of the films that catapulted Ingmar Bergman to international acclaim. (Dir. by Ingmar Bergman, 1957, Sweden, in Swedish with English subtitles, 92 mins., Not Rated)
