Considered to be one of Ingmar Bergman’s greatest and most affecting films, Wild Strawberries (1957) is a moving depiction of a cantankerous-yet-charming old man (famed Swedish filmmaker & actor Victor Sjöström) as he nears the end of his life. Through reveries, dreams, and a series of unlikely encounters, Bergman crafts a visually arresting, tonally varied, and deeply human tale of failure, forgiveness, and hope. We discuss this richly poetic and philosophical work with poet and philosopher James Matthew Wilson.
Next up on Criteria, we will be viewing the 1937 French film Le Grande Illusion directed by Jean Renoir (son of the painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir)! Join the discussion at http://www.facebook.com/groups/catholicpods
