Wild Strawberries (Region 1 Import DVD): Bergman,Ingmar Wild Strawberries (Region 1 Import DVD)
R613 Discovery Miles 6 130 Shipped within 8 - 14 working days

WILD STRAWBERRIES is among Ingmar Bergman's most rich and contemplative films, a lyrical reflection on guilt and disappointment in the form of a spiritual journey. The movie stars Victor Sjöström as Professor Isak Borg, an elderly academic who takes a trip by car from Stockholm to Lund to receive an honorary university degree, accompanied by his daughter-in-law (Ingrid Thulin). Along the way, they meet various passengers who seem to be weighed down by unresolved ethical dilemmas. Meanwhile, Borg's own existential crisis is triggered by dreams and memories in which he is confronted with past disappointments, missed opportunities, and troubled personal relationships with those close to him--his son (Gunnar Björnstrand), his mother (Naima Wifstrand), and his late wife (Gertrud Fridh). The film features stunning imagery, most notably in the flashback, dream, and nightmare sequences, as well as an outstanding final film performance by Sjöström (who is also a famed Swedish director of the silent era). This film was released soon after THE SEVENTH SEAL, which had earned Bergman accolades from film critics and moviegoers the world over. Though similarly challenging and philosophically complex, WILD STRAWBERRIES is often considered the more accessible of the two movies because of its ultimate warmth and affirmation of life.

Silent Tongue is a mute Kiowa Indian woman who is raped by Eamon HcCree, the owner of the Kickapoo Traveling Medicine Show. Eamon attempts to make up for his crime by marrying her, hoping for forgiveness. Instead, Silent Tongue enacts a bitter retribution through her two daughters, Awbonnie and Velada.

Awbonnie, as the film begins, has already died, but her grieving husband Talbot refuses to let her go, dragging around her corpse. To assuage Talbot, his father Prescott sets out to purchase Velada from Eamon, thinking that only Awbonnie's sister can replace her in Talbot's eyes.

But Velada's half-brother Reeves protests the attempted transaction. As a result, Prescott kidnaps Velada and flees, with not only Reeves and Eamon chasing him, but also Awbonnie's ghost.

An ambitious work that offers a weighty meditation on reparation and revenge, Shepard's poetic vision is well served by a first rate cast and Jack Conroy's expansive Scope photography

Roman Polanski's first feature is a brilliant psychological thriller that many critics still consider among his greatest work. The story is simple, yet the implications of its characters' emotions and actions are profound. When a young hitchhiker joins a couple on a weekend yacht trip, psychological warfare breaks out as the two men compete for the woman's attention. A storm forces the small crew below deck, and tension builds to a violent climax. With stinging dialogue and a mercilessly probing camera, Polanski creates a disturbing study of fear, humiliation, sexuality, and aggression. This remarkable directorial debut won Polanski worldwide acclaim, a place on the cover of Time, and his first Oscar nomination.

Through A Glass Darkly
A schizophrenic girl has visions, believing that Gods presence is ever closer. However, as her descent into madness deepens, she becomes the focal point for the emotions of three men. In challenging the traditional notions of God, Bergman's Academy Award winning film is a devastating, harrowing portrayal of the uneasiness and creeping paranoia of contemporary life.

Winter Light
A susceptible and disillusioned fisherman is urged by his wife to seek solace from his local priest. However, the priest is struggling to regain his own belief. Bergman's desire to define man's relationship to God is beautifully played out in the film with stunning character performances and cinematography from the director's favoured collaborator Sven Nykvist.

The Silence
The intimacy of two sisters threatens to destroy them both mentally and physically. Travelling to a foreign city on the brink of war and whose language they do not understand, the setting becomes a metaphor for the strained relationship between the women. This is a shattering vision of emotional isolation and despair in a claustrophobic spiritual void.

All three feature films in black & white and in Swedish with English subtitles.
