“One of Bergman’s warmest, and therefore finest films, this concerns an elderly academic – grouchy, introverted, dried up emotionally – who makes a journey to collect a university award, and en route relives his past by means of dreams, imagination, and encounters with others. It’s an occasionally over-symbolic work… but it’s filled with richly observed characters and a real feeling for the joys of nature and youth. And Sjöström – himself a celebrated director, best known for his silent work (which included the Hollywood masterpiece The Wind) – gives an astonishingly moving performance as the aged professor.…” (Geoff Andrew, Time Out)
