Summary

When Ingmar Bergman's Wild Strawberries was first released abroad in 1958, the director had still to make his reputation and the film did not meet with universal acclaim. The New York Times called it ''thoroughly mystifying.'' But since that time it has been acknowledged as one of the truly great films of world cinema. Philip and Kersti French give a wonderfully detailed account of Bergman's powerful and intense direction of Wild Strawberries. Most valuably, they set the film firmly in the context of Swedish life and culture. The authors also trace connections with the plays of August Strindberg, and the paintings of Edvard Munch and Carl Larsson.
