Autumn Sonata/Bd - Criterion Collection - Blu-Ray
AUTUMN SONATA was the only collaboration between cinema's two great Bergman's, Ingmar, the iconic director of THE SEVENTH SEAL, and Ingrid, the monumental star of CASABLANCA. The grand dame, playing an icy concert pianist, is matched beat for beat in ferocity by the filmmaker's recurring lead LIV Ullmann (SCENES FROM A MARRIAGE) as her eldest daughter. Over the course of a long, painful night that the two spend together after an extended separation, they finally confront the bitter discord of their relationship. This cathartic pas de deux, evocatively shot in burnished harvest colors by the great Sven Nykvist (FANNY AND ALEXANDER), ranks among Ingmar Bergman's major dramatic works.
