Max von Sydow, Bibi Andersson, Bengt Ekerot, Gunnar Björnstrand, Nils Poppe
Part of the Ingmar Bergman Season
The enduring masterpiece that inspired so many filmmakers and critics throughout the late 1950s. This searing morality tale functions on many levels – as a recreation of medieval life, as a desperate debate on religious belief, and as a vision of romantic love. Bergman provides no answers; it’s the questions that enthral. Max von Sydow and Bibi Andersson relished their first starring roles, and Gunnar Fischer’s cinematography was never better.
