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

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

A reviewer must exercise some tact in discussing this picture. It is a work of such high and subtle art that the temptation is to run in with a smother of adjectives and a display of analytical explanation.

Swedish master Ingmar Bergman delivered one of his greatest ruminations on love and life in this 1957 drama.

[VIDEO ESSAY] "Wild Strawberries" is a thematically abundant film that fluidly condenses a lifetime's worth of experience into succinct cinematic fragments under Ingmar Bergman's complex construction of abstract corollaries.

The relentless symbolism, and some rather heavy-handed dream sequences are off-putting at times, but Wild Strawberries has enough sorrow, warmth and profundity to make for sophisticated and rewarding viewing.

Bergman's often heralded masterpiece of European cinema is more than a formal delight. It's funny, touching, and very, very emotional.

It's most memorable due to the heartfelt sterling performance by the seventy-something Victor Seastrom.

Bergman understands one of the most bittersweet characteristics of nostalgia: it juxtaposes our memories, in which everyone is young and healthy, and the inevitable reality of physical decline that followed. [Full review in Portuguese.]
