Hour of the Wolf
Max von Sydow stars as an insomniac painter who is forced to confront his inner demons.
Dir Ingmar Berman
With Max von Sydow, Liv Ullmann, Ingrid Thulin, Erland Josephson
An insomniac painter (von Sydow) living with his partner (Ullmann) on an island retreat is invited to dinner at a baron’s castle, leading to a confrontation with his inner demons. A deeply personal meditation on the relationship between the artist, his audience and the creatures of his imagination, this is one of Bergman’s most formally ambitious films, with surreal fantasy, expressionist horror and an ingenious modernist narrative.
