Classic Film Femme

Foreign Film Friday

There is no sleet in Fanny and Alexander. None of this in-between weather that we’ve been experiencing lately. Ingmar Bergman’s film sets are always perfection in terms of how he depicts weather. In Fanny and Alexander winter is cozy candles, christmas feasts and gently falling snow. Summer is bright green ferns in sunrooms that overlook the water. In spring, thunder and lightning accompany deluges of rain crashing into the windows of abysmally dark rooms or tables are laden with fresh spring flowers and streams of sunlight. There is no compromise. On the sets of Bergman films- it is all or it is nothing.
