Fanny och Alexander
The superior, uncut TV version of Bergman’s magisterial and sumptuous portrait of a 20th-century Swedish family.
Dir Ingmar Bergman
With Bertil Guve, Pernilla Allwin, Erland Josephson, Harriet Andersson, Gunn Wållgren
311min + interval (60min)
The superior, uncut TV version of Bergman’s magisterial and sumptuously mounted portrait of an extended family in early 20th-century Sweden, seen largely through the eyes of a small boy. Drawing heavily on Bergman’s own memories, it highlights the young protagonist’s fascination with storytelling, while also serving as a kind of confessional critique of his films, reworked themes and moments from which abound.
Tickets £15, concs £12 (Members pay £2 less)
