Filled with warmth, sorrow and compassion, Wild Strawberries is a dreamlike road movie that condenses the life of Professor Isak Borg (Victor Sjöströman), an elderly medical professor travelling through the Swedish country with his daughter in- law (Ingrid Thulin), into a series of episodic flashes of daydreams and memories, interspersed with serendipitous coincidences that happen on the actual journey.

It is a tale of rebirth and redemption, as he grapples with forgone deeds and an encroaching death. This humanistic masterpiece, alongside The Seventh Seal (made in the exact same year), is considered to be the work that propelled Bergman to international acclaim, inspiring many other road movies that came after it.

Part of the Swedish Film Festival 2018: 100 Years Of Ingmar Bergman.
