Ingmar Bergman Double Feature! WAITING WOMEN is a charming film about three sisters who deliver personal accounts of the state of their marriages, ranging from brutally honest to genuinely funny and sweet. Bergman’s first film in color, ALL THESE WOMEN, is a comedy about a supercilious critic drawn into the dizzying orbit of a famous cellist.

Presented in associations with the Swedish Film Institute and the Ingmar Bergman Foundation.

Tickets will be available in April.

35 mm!
WAITING WOMEN
KVINNORS VÄNTAN
1952, Janus Films, 107 min, Sweden, Dir: Ingmar Bergman
An early precursor to many Bergman classics — indicated by both its flashback structure and comedic timing — WAITING WOMEN is a charming film about three sisters who deliver personal accounts of the state of their marriages, ranging from brutally honest to genuinely funny and sweet. Known primarily for a hilarious flashback sequence involving a broken elevator, the film’s more subtle humor is just as memorable, pointing towards the minimalism and restraint that Bergman would demonstrate throughout his career.

ALL THESE WOMEN
FÖR ATT INTE TALA OM ALLA DESSA KVINNOR
1964, Janus Films, 80 min, Sweden, Dir: Ingmar Bergman
Conceived as an amusing diversion in the wake of the despairing THE SILENCE, this comedy is Bergman’s first film in color, and it looks like a glorious chocolate box. Working from a bawdy screenplay he cowrote with actor Erland Josephson, about a supercilious critic drawn into the dizzying orbit of a famous cellist, Bergman brings together buoyant comic turns by a number of his frequent collaborators, including Jarl Kulle, Eva Dahlbeck, Harriet Andersson, and Bibi Andersson. ALL THESE WOMEN, in which Bergman pokes fun at the pretensions of drawing room art, possesses a distinctly playful atmosphere and a carefree rhythm.

Both films with English subtitles. | Screening formats: 35mm (WAITING WOMEN), DCP (ALL THESE WOMEN)
