3 – Wild Strawberries (1957)

Standard

With deep tenderness, Bergman chronicles the minutae of an old man’s emotional awakening. The metamorphosis is assisted by symbolic dreams, road-trip-induced memories and a straight-talking family member.

Like: Scrooge through the looking glass.

Core truth: It’s never too late to give a shit, particularly if there’s a sympathetic daughter-in-law about.
