Description

This existential wail of a drama from Ingmar Bergman concerns two sisters, Karin (Ingrid Thulin) and Maria (Liv Ullmann), keeping vigil for a third, Agnes (Harriet Andersson), who is dying of cancer and can find solace only in the arms of a beatific servant (Kari Sylwan). An intensely felt film that is one of Bergman’s most striking formal experiments, Cries and Whispers (which won an Oscar for the extraordinary color photography of Sven Nykvist) is a powerful depiction of human behavior in the face of death, positioned on the borders between reality and nightmare, tranquillity and terror.


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.
