Fanny and Alexander

Ingmar Bergman has been known to make pessimistic psychological dramas. However, Bergman presents a rather touching semi-autobiographical tale of two young children, growing up in turn-of-the-century Sweden. It follows the trials and tribulations of the two title children (Bertil Guve and Pernilla Allwin), and the various burdens that descend upon their families' lives over passing years.

Incredible is too small a word to describe this feast for the eyes. Bergman has said that this would be the film to finish his career (though he made one other film after this), and it ends a remarkable career of one of the greatest masters of cinema. A perfect film that should go along nicely with previous Bergman films, like Wild Strawberries, The Seventh Seal and Persona.
