After living a life marked by coldness, an ageing professor is forced to confront the emptiness of his existence in this character study from director Ingmar Bergman. Wild Strawberries chronicles an automobile trip taken by this elderly medical professor to accept an honorary degree, with incidents and conversations occurring during the journey that are intermixed with dreams and memories as the old man comes to terms with the life he has lived.

'An archetypal Ingmar Bergman film, and one of his best' - Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

'Victor Sjostrom's magnificent performance carries an emotional authority that gives Bergman's great movie a warmth and an accessibility that it might not otherwise have had' - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
