Time & Tickets

Bergman intended FANNY & ALEXANDER as his swan song, and it is the legendary director’s warmest and most autobiographical film. This four-time Academy Award-winning triumph combines his trademark melancholy and emotional intensity with immense joy and sensuality.
This sumptuous, glowing family chronicle opens in 1907 in the mansion of the Ekdahl clan, whose matriarch is a retired actor approaching death while her three grown sons are familiar Bergman types: the mediocre actor, the good-hearted hedonist, and the grim neurotic. Bergman focuses on the eponymous brother and sister, whose father suddenly dies and whose mother remarries to a pinched, puritanical bishop. Wrenched from the upholstered enclave of the Ekdahl home, the children find themselves in the cold, austere home of their new father, who turns out to be a tyrant and sadist.

Please note that this film is in Swedish, German, Yiddish, English and French, with Dutch subtitles.
