Ingmar Bergman Films: 'Autumn Sonata,' 'Cries & Whispers'

A number of Ingmar Bergman movies, among them the Ingrid Bergman / Liv Ullmann mother-daughter drama Autumn Sonata and Best Picture Oscar nominee Cries & Whispers, will be screened – in new 35mm prints – at the American Cinematheque's Aero Theatre in Santa Monica between May 26-July 7.

An Anglo-Norwegian production, Autumn Sonata (1978, to be screened on May 26) is a harrowing tale of mother-daughter lovelessness, boasting excellent performances by Liv Ullmann and Ingrid Bergman (working with the other Bergman for the first and only time); Cries & Whispers / Viskningar och rop (1972, on July 7) is another harrowing – and beautifully shot – family drama starring Ullmann, Ingrid Thulin, Kari Sylwan, and an outstanding Harriet Andersson. The Magic Flute / Trollflöjten (1975, on May 29), for its part, is a filmed play: Mozart's opera for little kids.

Additionally, the American Cinematheque will also present a special sneak preview of Ingmar Bergman's latest effort: Saraband (June 30), the story of a lawyer (Liv Ullmann) who feels a sudden need to contact her ex-husband (Erland Josephson) whom she has not seen in thirty years. Needless to say, heavy drama ensues.

    Here's eagerly awaiting the next Ingmar Bergman retrospective in the LA area.
    One that will show the director's films from the 1940s to the 1990s.
