An ageing doctor, introverted and withdrawn, takes a long car ride to collect an honorary degree. At various stops en route, he is reminded of regrets and pleasures, and experiences nostalgia and loneliness. As the past and present and daydreams and nightmares merge with reality, he gains new insights and peace within himself.
Flowing with symbolism, philosophical themes and compassion, it’s moving and bittersweet, praised as “one of Bergman’s warmest films … it boasts a magnificent performance … and rich, vivid characterisations from a superb cast of Bergman regulars.”
From the director of ‘Smiles of a Summer Night’, ‘The Seventh Seal’, and ‘Persona’.
Voted among the greatest films of all time in polls by Sight and Sound, BBC, IMDb and Total Film.
