"This is one of the truly outstanding works of post-war European cinema. Ingmar Bergman's allegorical road-movie slips between present and past, dream and reality to explore the external and internal worlds of its ageing central character."
Sobre o filme
"Ingmar Bergman first had the idea for this cerebral road movie while standing at the door of his grandmother's house and wondering whether he'd re-enter childhood by stepping inside. The influence of Strindberg's Dream Play and Shakespeare's King Lear pervades proceedings, but the action is also full of personal details, with Isak Borg's mother being played by Bergman's ex-wife, Else Fisher, and many of the professor's character traits being inspired by Bergman's pastor father."
