Product Description & Reviews
Through the wide eyes of ten-year-old Alexander (Bertil Guve), we witness the great delights and conflicts of the Ekdahl family??Â€?a sprawling, convivial bourgeois clan living in turn-of-the-century Sweden. Intended as Ingmar Bergman??Â€?s swan song, Fanny and Alexander (Fanny och Alexander) is the legendary filmmaker??Â€?s warmest and most autobiographical film, a triumph that combines his trademark melancholy and emotional rigor with immense joyfulness and sensuality. The Criterion Collection is proud to present not only the theatrical version??Â€?winner of the 1984 Academy Award?? for Best Foreign Language Film??Â€?but also, for the first time on home video in the U.S., the original five-hour television version, together in a single boxed set. Also included is Bergman??Â€?s own feature-length documentary The Making of Fanny and Alexander (Dokument Fanny och Alexander), offering a unique glimpse into his creative process and a candid behind-the-scenes look at a monumental film in the making. INCLUDED WITH FANNY AND ALEXANDER, FOR THE FIRST TIME ON DVD: THE MAKING OF FANNY AND ALEXANDER The Making of Fanny and Alexander is a fascinating look at the creation of a masterpiece. Directed by Ingmar Bergman himself, this feature-length documentary chronicles the methods of one of cinema??Â€?s true luminaries as he labors to realize his crowning production. Featuring Bergman at work with many of his longtime collaborators??Â€?including cinematographer Sven Nykvist and actors Erland Josephson, Gunnar Bj??rnstrand, and Harriet Andersson??Â€?The Making of Fanny and Alexander is a witty and revealing portrait of a virtuoso filmmaker.
