Sjostrom, in his final film, delivers one of the finest performances in any Bergman film -- a major accomplishment considering the virtuosity that Bergman's actors consistently display.

Mr. Bergman, being a poet with the camera, gets some grand, open, sensitive images, but he has not conveyed full clarity in this film.

[Worth watching] if only to see issues that are nowadays considered verboeten tossed around as freely as a football.

Victor Sjostrom's magnificent performance carries an emotional authority that gives Bergman's great movie a warmth and an accessibility that it might not otherwise have had.

Poetic and richly elegant -- and sometimes playful (but don't tell anyone, because lots of people think of Bergman as stupefyingly serious).

...a touching look at old age and how memories from the past can affect us as mature beings.

Each step along the trip yields new faces, new situations, and dilemmas -- all leading back to the film's ideas about love, life, death, accomplishment, and incompetence.

Presumably, the audience is stunned that it can understand the filmic metaphors... and thus, they must be genius.

A deeply moving film that extends beyond Bergman's experiences and speaks to the importance of emotional connections among human beings.
