Possibly Ingmar Bergman’s greatest film, this profound character study chronicles an automobile trip taken by an elderly medical professor to accept an honorary degree. Incidents and conversations occurring during the journey are intermixed with dreams and memories as the old man comes to terms with the life he has lived. The film was strongly referenced by Woody Allen when he made Deconstructing Harry.

Victor Sjöström’s magnificent performance carries an emotional authority that gives Bergman’s great movie … warmth and … accessibility.”  (Peter Bradshaw – The Guardian)
