WILD STRAWBERRIES

Dir. Ingmar Bergman (Sweden: 1957), 91 mins.

An elderly physician, Professor Isak Borg, experiences disillusionment as he reflects upon his life and begins to perceive his mortality. He finds himself repeatedly affected by intrusive dreams and hallucinations that expose his darkest fears, as he travels to Lund to receive an honorary award after 50 years of medical practice. He begins to realize that the choices he made in the past have created a cold and empty life, devoid of real meaning or value. Through the love and forgiveness of his family he finally achieves redemption and reintegration.
