Cries and Whispers

Viskningar och rop

Directed by Ingmar Bergman
Sweden, 1972


Winner of an Oscar for the extraordinary color photography of Sven Nykvist, this existential wail of a drama is one of Bergman’s most striking formal experiments. Two sisters, keeping vigil for a third, who is dying of cancer and can find solace only in the arms of a beatific servant.
