Sunday’s Children (director’s cut)
Bergman’s autobiographically inspired script, directed by his son Daniel.
Dir Daniel Bergman
With Thommy Berggren, Henrik Linnros, Lena Endre
Bergman famously had a difficult relationship with his volatile father, but the autobiographically inspired script for this film, directed by his son Daniel, suggests a coming to terms with the past. Beautifully acted and shot, the account of a summer holiday in the 1920s – intercut with scenes of the adult protagonist visiting his parent in a care home – proceeds hesitantly towards thoughts of reconciliation.
