Description

The strangest and most disturbing of the films Bergman shot on the island of Fa°ro¨, Hour of the Wolf stars Max von Sydow as a haunted painter living in voluntary exile with his wife (Liv Ullmann). When the couple are invited to a nearby castle for dinner, things start to go wrong with a vengeance, as a coven of sinister aristocrats hastens the artist’s psychological deterioration. This gripping film is charged with a nightmarish power rare in the Bergman canon, and contains dreamlike effects that brilliantly underscore the tale’s horrific elements.


The Bergman Century

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Ingmar Bergman's birth, the Film Society of Minneapolis St. Paul proudly brings 16 of his greatest films to the Twin Cities. Co-sponsored by the Embassy of Sweden and the American Swedish Institute.
