Wild Strawberries [Smultronstallet]

Ingmar Bergman (director)
Bibi Andersson, Ingrid Thulin (starring)

Stockholm: Svensk Filmindustri, 1957. Original Swedish illustrated poster for the 1957 film.

After exploring his disillusion with religion in the "Faith" trilogy, Bergman took an unusually warm and humanistic view with this film, a quiet reflection on old age, youth, and isolation. An aging medical professor travels to his former university to receive an honorary degree, and finds himself in a euphoric state, moving between the present and an abstract dreamlike muse that embodies his many regrets and disappointments, but ending with a hauntingly beautiful return to the simplicity of his early days.

28 x 39 inches. Lightly restored, linen-backed and rolled. Near Fine.
