One tumultuous year in the life of the upper-middle-class 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 into a kind of gothic horror.  “Fanny and Alexander” is Ingmar Bergman’s dreamlike family chronicle. He intended it as his swan song, and it is the director’s warmest and most autobiographical film, an Academy Award–winning triumph that combines his trademark melancholy and emotional intensity with immense joy and sensuality. Bergman described “Fanny and Alexander” as “the sum total of my life as a filmmaker.”
