Fanny and Alexander

  R HD

Ingmar Bergman

Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.

Plot Summary

Through the eyes of ten-year-old Alexander, we witness the delights and conflicts of the Ekdahl family, a sprawling bourgeois clan in turn-of-the-twentieth-century Sweden. Ingmar Bergman intended Fanny and Alexander as his swan song, and it is the legendary director’s warmest and most autobiographical film, a four-time Academy Award–winning triumph that combines his trademark melancholy and emotional intensity with immense joy and sensuality.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A big, dark, beautiful, generous family chronicle, which touches on many of the themes from earlier films while introducing something that, in Bergman, might pass for serenity. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: A sumptuously produced period piece that is also a rich tapestry of childhood memoirs and moods, fear and fancy, employing all the manners and means of the best of cinematic theatrical from high and low comedy to darkest tragedy. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Utterly enthralling. – Douglas Pratt, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: A sprawling, ornately constructed entertainment. – Lance Goldenberg, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

One of my very favorite movies...

… and I would argue that it’s one of the best!
This looks like the theatrical release version of Fanny & Alexander- there is a much longer version (available through Criterion) that was released on TV in Sweden… amazing!!!
Highly recommended!!!!!

One of my favorite

Combination of Swedish spirit, proper filming, multicultural, religious and human nature paradigms plus talent of great Bergman.

One of the greatest films of all time!!

I first saw the theatrical version of this movie on Hulu. It was lush, forboding, joyous, and painful at the same time. When I saw the Swedish TV version, I fell in love all over again. Bergman already had me with "Persona" and "Wild Strawberries". When I saw "Fanny and Alexander", he gained a fan for life.
