Smultronstället Wild strawberries by Ingmar Bergman( Visual )

63 editions published between 1957 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 2,068 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
