We are not equipped for such excursions. We might just as well ignore the big things. Therefore, let us be happy while we're happy, let's be kind, generous, affectionate, and good.
Therefore it is necessary, and not in the least shameful, to take pleasure in the little world, good food, gentle smiles, fruit trees in bloom, Waltzes".

Adolescent siblings Alexander and Fanny Ekdahl lead a relatively joyous and exuberant life with their well-off extended paternal family, led by the family matriarch, their grandmother, Helena Ekdahl.
The openness of the family culture is exemplified by Helena's now deceased husband ending up becoming best friends with one of her lovers, a Jewish puppet maker named Isak Jacobi, and their Uncle Gustav Adolf's open liaison with one of the family maids, Maj, who everyone in the family adores, even Gustav Adolf's wife, Alma.
Between the siblings, Alexander in particular has inherited the family's love of storytelling, his parents and his grandmother who are actors and who manage their own theater.
Things change for Alexander and Fanny when their father, Oscar, dies shortly after Christmas Written by Huggo.
SPOILER: Most of the ideas revealed through mystery by Bergman in Fanny och Alexander have already been addressed by others.
The first time I saw this film was in , on tv and with a much shorter version than the one released in England in , which is the full plus minute original.
That day I was scared -really scared- watching the scene where Alexander is been helped to let out his most evil thoughts by Ishmael, a completely mysterious character with supernatural insight.
And then, a blackout. You can imagine: if I was truly scared this left me breathless. Then, almost twenty years passed until I found this remarkable jewel, in its full version, perfectly digitised and audio-enhanced in dvd.
I bought a dlp projector and used a previewing room to show it to my students. I didn't know what was going to happen.
But that doubt was worth the waiting. I think it's very difficult to say any other thing than breathtaking to underline what this film accomplishes.
It's the reflected work of years of understanding and hard work between Bergman and Nyvqvist. One of the most powerful, beautiful, fearful and perfect films of all times.
An exaggeration, like. Yes, but I think that there are no words to explain how plainly perfect this work is. The way it was written.
The way it was directed. The way it was lighted. The way it was designed. The way each and every character plays his or her role.
The details -not a Bergman's new- to which they paid the most dedicated attention to. The luxurious use of available light.
The setting of the story. The amazing locations. Everything in this film was perfectly studied, down to the colour shifts that would take place in every shot!
The troubling minds of all those characters whose lives are at crossroads. The powerful and eventful lives of just one familiy.
The small and big affairs that affect them. Gratitude and hate. Sign up Log in. Web icon An illustration of a computer application window Wayback Machine Texts icon An illustration of an open book.

February 6, Full Review…. August 11, Full Review…. View All Critic Reviews Jul 12, Ingmar Bergman crafts a stunning piece of cinema that is bold, ambitious and superbly acted and is a film that ranks among the finest of foreign cinema.
The story is simple, yet the way Bergman tackles his subject is truly exquisite and adds so much to the overall enjoyment of the film. I have heard many great things about Bergman, and I can see why.
He's a filmmaker who crafts picture that not only tell a great story, but they rely on a powerful, evocative visual style to really grab your attention.
With Fanny and Alexander, he uses a simple idea, yet he brings it to fruition with a superb cast of talented individuals, and it's a beautiful picture that easily ranks among the finest ever made.
The story follows two children and its adventures they experience with their family. What follows is a striking story that you cannot forget, and is hard to tear yourself away from because Bergman's picture is more a work of art than actual film.
This is a must watch if you enjoy a finely crafted genre picture, a film that resonates with the viewer and uses a simple plot to its advantage.
Of course what I appreciated the most about the film is the fact that Ingmar Bergman doesn't overdo anything with the film, and like many of cinema's finest artists, he does phenomenal work with using so little, and it works very well.
Fanny and Alexander is a picture is engaging from start to finish, a film that has power in its visuals, acting and direction.
