[Bergman's] self conscious, immensely grave direction suggests some statement about the meaning of life and all that. It is all exquisitely tedious.

Of course Bergman's actresses suffer superbly in microscopic close-up, but the nagging doubt persists as to whether this is incisive psychodrama or just those old nordic blues again.

Autumn Sonata can finally be seen as an austerely beautiful meditation on death and the not-always-realized possibility of reconciliation across generations.

This is not a comfortable movie, but it isn't meant to be. It's a difficult work, but that very difficulty is what makes it rewarding.

has a steady, accumulating power, and while it ranks high among Bergman's dramas, it is not quite a masterpiece, at least not on the level of Cries and Whispers (1972) and Scenes From a Marriage (1973), his signature films of the period.

The movie makes good chamber music: it's a crafted miniature with Bergman's usual bombast built, for once, into the plot requirements.
