Fanny and Alexander

In many respects the crowning glory of Bergman’s career, winning him four Oscars. This family saga, following the ups and downs of the Ekdahl family and in particular the two children of the film’s title, may seem a little cosy by the rigorous standards of earlier decades but much of it draws upon Bergman’s own life and memories. Shot in beautiful burnished tones by Sven Nykvist.
