Cast: 5–7 male, 4–7 female
Professor Isak Borg is stubborn, egotistical and pedantic, yet he is also a distinguished scientist. He travels from Stockholm to Lund with his pregnant daughter-in-law Marianne to receive an honorary doctorate, and finds himself re-evaluating his life along the way, thanks to a series of nostalgic encounters which prompt dreams and reveries of his troubled past. Wild Strawberries unites two familiar strands of Bergman’s work (male vanity, and the re-evaluation of life in the face of death) and is a fascinating study of one man’s life and his thoughts, regrets and memories.
