About the Movie
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. 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 art-house cinema and one of the films that catapulted Ingmar Bergman to international acclaim.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It's a personal and profound work.
Fresh: An archetypal Ingmar Bergman film, and one of his best.
Fresh: Gunnar Fischer's photography becomes ever more luminous and Sjostrom's performance grows in greatness.
Fresh: The relentless symbolism, and some rather heavy-handed dream sequences are off-putting at times, but Wild Strawberries has enough sorrow, warmth and profundity to make for sophisticated and rewarding viewing.

I've already pre-ordered the HD version. Such a great film, I'm so excited. Now can I get some more Bergman films please?
A simple story of an grumpy, old, widowed professor who must travel, via car with his daughter in law, a long distance to receive a prestigious degree from his University. Along the way, he contemplates his life through flashbacks and symbolism that only Bergman can write and capture on film. Subtile and quite yet powerful and moving.
