A beautiful and emotional film about the relationships between several generations of a family. Some beautifully shot cinematography gives life to the tense family sequences. This is one of Bergman's most accessible (albeit longest) films and may be his masterpiece.

Bergman's view of usual subjects (death and human relations) trough the eyes, in this one, of two boys part of a rich old swedish family. The version I've seen is the 3 hrs. long. You can see something is missing, but still is a very good version. The movie has a marvelous script. Technically flawless.

Fanny and Alexander review

It focuses on a wealthy brother and sister Alexander (Bertil Guve), his sister Fanny (Pernilla Allwin). Their father unexpectedly passes away. Emilie (Ewa Fröling), their mother, marries Edvard Vergérus (Jan Malmsjö) who is a strict bishop. Bountiful of characters which lacks introduction and sluggish pace makes this film difficult to view. Strong start though it dwindles towards the middle portion of the picture.

The screenplay is the only aspect worth viewing with lines: "You must be gentle with people." "Everything can happen." "Let us be kind, generous, affectionate and good. It is necessary and not at all shameful to take pleasure in the little world." Plush set-pieces and wonderful wardrobe. So many characters and yet had poor development on each one. It makes the viewer...
