Wild Strawberries

Traveling to accept an honorary degree, Professor Isak Borg—masterfully played by veteran director Victor Sjöström, the filmmaker behind the silent classic The Phantom Carriage, one of Bergman’s favorites—is forced to face his past, come to terms with his faults, and make peace with the inevitability of his approaching death. Through flashbacks and fantasies, dreams, and nightmares, Wild Strawberries dramatizes his remarkable voyage of self-discovery. This richly humane masterpiece, full of iconic imagery, catapulted Ingmar Bergman to international acclaim.
