Two Line Reviews - #168

Movie: Smultronstället (or) Wild Strawberries (Swedish,1957)

Plot: An old doctor, during a travel to get an honor for his work as a doctor,understands his own self through his daughter-in-law and how lonely his life has been through three young teenagers who travel with them. He realises how his loneliness has led him to live his life with just memories from his past.

  • The peculiar and out-of-the-box style of screenplay adopted by Ingmar Bergman is impressive. Dreams that we get are as weird,yet connected with us, as the ones shown in the film.
  • The roles of Dr.Isak. The old man plays it wonderfully. The beautiful looking girl who plays Marianne is sharp with her action too.
Creatively superior; Stands Unique contentwise.
