As an elderly academic travels with his daughter-in-law by car from Stockholm to Lind to receive an award, his journey detours through his past, his desires, and his anxieties. Bergman’s road-movie through space, time and fantasy is one of his greatest achievements, imbued with an unsentimental warmth that derives in no small part from the uniformly fine performances; Sjöström, especially, is extraordinary.
