Fanny and Alexander15

Directed by Ingmar Bergman | Sweden | 1982 | 3h 9m | Swedish & German w/ English subtitles | Starring Bertil Guve, Pernilla Allwin, Kristina Adolphson, Börje Ahlstedt, Kristian Almgren

As children in the loving Ekdahl family, Fanny and Alexander enjoy a happy life with their parents, who run a theatre company. After the unexpected death of their father, the household dynamic experiences a sudden and sad change when their mother marries a stern bishop. Intended as his swan-song, Ingmar Bergman’s warmest and most autobiographical film combines his trademark melancholy and emotional intensity to present a nostalgic tale of familial love.

Reviews

‘Fanny and Alexander is a brilliant – in fact maybe unique – fusion of Shakespeare and Dickens, with some Chekhov…a stunning movie’
★★★★★
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

‘An accomplished masterpiece, with excellent performances and rarely bettered direction.’
★★★★★
Alan Morrison, Empire Magazine

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
