Directed by Ingmar Bergman
Starring Victor Sjöström, Ingrid Thulin, and Bibi Andersson
(1957) Professor Victor Sjöström is driven by prickly daughter-in-law Ingrid Thulin to receive an honorary degree; along the way he returns in reverie to his youth, visits his aged mother, and picks up hitchhiker Bibi Andersson – the image of his young love. The great director Sjöström (The Phantom Carriage, The Wind, etc.) gives one of the screen’s legendary performances. DCP restoration. Approx. 90 min.
“A richly shadowed story, all the more telling for its streaks of comic light.”
– Anthony Lane, The New Yorker
