Smultronstället = Wild strawberries by Ingmar Bergman( Visual )

65 editions published between 1957 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 2,015 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An aged professor - introverted and emotionally cold - makes a journey to collect a university award and en route relives his past through recollection, dreams and imagination. Borg emerges purged, if not wholly changed from this confrontation with self. The theme of the film, incarnated in the successive generations of the Borgs, is death-in-life, emotional-spiritual atrophy. It has been compared with King Lear and Strindberg's Dream Play and, in structure with a Bach fugue. Wild strawberries are a Swedish symbol for the emergence of spring, the rebirth of life

By applying his own very personal philosophy and his wild sense of humour, Ingemar manages to distance himself from catastrophe time after time. One of Ingemar's ways of getting around moments of crises is to go down on his knees to feign the barking of a dog

Au hasard Balthazar = Balthazar by Robert Bresson( Visual )

A profound masterpiece from one of the most revered filmmakers in the history of cinema, director Robert Bresson's Au hasard Balthazar follows the donkey Balthazar as he is passed from owner to owner, some kind and some cruel but all with motivations beyond his understanding. Balthazar, whose life parallels that of his first keeper, Marie, is truly a beast of burden, suffering the sins of man. But despite his powerlessness, he accepts his fate nobly. Through Bresson's unconventional approach to composition, sound, and narrative, this seemingly simple story becomes a moving parable of purity and transcendence

6 editions published in 2010 in Swedish and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1846, Vogler's Magnetic Health Theater has developed quite a controversial reputation for its mesmerizing performances. The troupe consists of magician Dr. Albert Emanuel Vogler, his assistant Aman (his wife Manda disguised as a man), Granny the elderly potion mistress, coach driver Simson, and the sly barker Tubal. On the outskirts of Stockholm, Consul Abraham Egerman, Police Chief Starbeck, and Dr. Vergerus, the Royal Medical Adviser meet and detain them. These men believe the magician to be a charlatan, and are suspicious of his supposedly astonishing magic show, and demand to inspect it for themselves before it is shown to the general public.
