Feb. 22 ~ “Sawdust and Tinsel”
(Ingmar Bergman, Sweden, 1953)
Bergman presents the battle of the sexes as a ramshackle, grotesque carnival. The story of the charged relationship between a turn-of-the-century traveling circus owner (Ake Grönberg) and his performer girlfriend (Harriet Andersson), the film features dreamlike detours and twisted psychosexual power plays that presage the director’s Smiles of a Summer Night and The Seventh Seal, works that would soon change the landscape of art cinema forever.
