Description

Autumn Sonata was the only collaboration between cinema’s two great Bergmans: Ingmar, the iconic director of The Seventh Seal, and Ingrid, the monumental star of Casablanca. The grand dame, playing an icy concert pianist, is matched beat for beat in ferocity by the filmmaker’s recurring lead Liv Ullmann, as her eldest daughter. Over the course of a day and a long, painful night that the two spend together after an extended separation, they finally confront the bitter discord of their relationship. This cathartic pas de deux, evocatively shot in burnished harvest colors by the great Sven Nykvist, ranks among Ingmar Bergman’s major dramatic works.


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.
