‘Wild Strawberries’ 1957
Despite having 8 kids in the house for two days on the weekend, managed to find time to watch my eight Ingmar Bergman film in 12 days. Tonight was one of the first, if not the first, that brought Bergman to international attention, released the same year as The Seventh Seal (1957). It’s quite an extraordinary film in many, but it’s not, for me, the very best of his films. But then again it was only the first time I’ve seen it. I’ll write more about it on Monday after our overseas guests have left.
