Wild Strawberries (PG)

Outdoor Cinema 2024

Ingmar Bergman’s masterpiece stars Victor Sjöström as a grumpy professor who embarks on a nostalgic road trip through Swedish countryside with his daughter-in-law.

Released the same year as The Seventh Seal (1957), Wild Strawberries is one of Ingmar Bergman’s warmest films, featuring a superb performance Victor Sjöström as an academic who travels with his daughter-in-law (Ingrid Thulin) from Stockholm to Lund to accept an award. The journey triggers memories – some joyous, some poignant – in the old man, who attempts to make peace with the past.

Wild Strawberries is a film of unforgettable moments – the haunting dream sequences, the encounter with the enchanting young student (Bibi Andersson) who reminds him of his youth, the final, emotional shot. It remains a beautiful portrait of introspection and redemption, with excellent performances throughout.
