Smultronstället = Wild strawberries by Ingmar Bergman( Visual )

61 editions published between 1957 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 2,057 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

My life as a dog is set in the 1950's. 12-year-old Ingemar Johansson lives with his elder brother and sick mother.

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

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. So a private show is performed as Vergerus and Vogler engage in their own battle of wills. Who will win this conflict between science and superstition?
