Set in Sweden at the turn of the century, Ingmar Bergman's semi-autobiographical story follows two children, Fanny and Alexander, as their comfortable lives change dramatically when their father dies onstage during a performance of Hamlet.
Their mother marries a strict clergyman and the new family move into the his home to lead a cold and unhappy life, which consumes the mother with regrets. Told through the eyes of ten-year-old Alexander, whose imagination fuels the magical goings-on leading up to and following the death of his father, this multiple Oscar winner is one of Bergman's most cherished works.
Fanny and Alexander, dir. Ingmar Bergman, Sweden 1982, 188 mins, 35mm
