Fanny and Alexander

Fanny och Alexander; Ingmar Bergman, 1982, versions: OR , CS

Accreditation is required at www.kadu.sk. Fanny and Alexander is Bergman’s dreamlike family chronicle. The Ekdahl’s are an upper-middle-class theatrical family sheltered by their own theatrics from the deepening chaos of the outside world. One tumultuous year in the life of the Ekdahl family is viewed through the eyes of ten-year-old Alexander, whose imagination fuels the magical goings-on leading up to and following the death of his father. His mother’s remarriage to a stern prelate banishes Alexander and his sister Fanny from all known joys, and thrusts them and the movie into a kind of gothic horror. The bishop is a Bergmanesque character whose severity has gone awry - he has become sinister - and the film’s round rejection of him in favour of ”kindness, affection and goodness” may be Bergman’s fondest farewell to cinema. Oscar® awarded for Best Art Direction-Set Decoration, Best Cinematography, Best Costume Design, Best Foreign Language Film and nominated for Best Director Ingmar Bergman. Show more

Wild Strawberries | KADU 2018

Smultronstället; Ingmar Bergman, 1957, versions: OR , CS : swe

Sen starnúceho profesora Borga naznačuje neodvratnú blízkosť jeho smrti, a zároveň neodčinený dlh, ktorý musí do konca svojho života splatiť. Rozhodne sa odcestovať na juh Švédska, no z poverčivosti a strachu pred lietadlom uprednostní cestu autom. V sprievode jeho nevesty sa výlet mení na cestu do minulosti a vnútra, počas ktorej sa hranice medzi skutočnosťou a snom pomaly rozplývajú. Na konci namáhavej duševnej púte Borga čaká kruté sebapoznanie a prehodnotenie doterajšieho života. Show more
