Truly, this movie touched my soul. I don't know exactly why nor can I explain it , there's a certain something there - there. I want to see it many more times . I'd like to live in it .
I thoroughly enjoyed this thought-provoking, sensitive film.

Bergman's most humane & warmest of films. Sjostrom, formerly Sweden's biggest director, gives a tour-de-force performance as an elderly professor who is joined by his daughter-in law & hitchhikers to accept an honorary degree. The use of flashbacks & fantasies, we see a man rediscover himself, but never does Bergman show Sjostrom's self-knowledge through cheesy sentimentality. An engaging film with emotional honesty. I give it a 4.5/5.
Even though The Seventh Seal is slightly better, this one is a real winner. It's one of the best films of its decade. It's a must-see for everyone.

I enjoyed this movie very much. It was the best Swedish movie I've seen so far. I would like to see "Svenska Hjaltar" Expectations (1997) sometime as this too sounds like a good movie! Thanks foe having such variety and GREAT movies!Sven Jnsson
