||Synopsis: With the exception of his elderly housekeeper Miss Agda who he treats almost like a surrogate platonic wife, widowed seventy-eight year old Dr. Isak Borg, a former medical doctor and professor, has retreated from any human contact, partly his own want but partly the decision of others who do not want to spend time with him because of his cold demeanor. He is traveling from his home in Stockholm to Lund to accept an honorary degree. Instead of flying as was the original plan, he decides to take the day long drive instead. Along for the ride is his daughter-in-law Marianne, who had been staying with him for the month but has now decided to go home. The many stops and encounters along the way make him reminisce about various parts of his life. Those stops which make him reminisce directly are at his childhood summer home, at the home of his equally emotionally cold mother, and at a gas station where the attendants praise him as a man for his work.

I'd seen "Wild Strawberries" as a college freshman when it was first
released, and knew right away I'd be a Bergman fan from then on.
I watched it again just last night, January 2004, at age 63, and needless to
say got a whole different perspective on the film. Where the surrealist
touches, moody photography, and incredibly smooth direction had made the big
hit with me as a near boy, as an aging man I found myself--I hesitate to say
painfully, but...well, closely--identifying with old Isak Borg in his
strange pilgrimage, both interior and exterior, the day he receives his
honorary degree at the cathedral in Lund.
In the last twenty minutes or so of the movie, I found tears running down my
face, not from any thrilling sentimental browbeating (I doubt if Mr. Bergman
shot five seconds' worth of sentimentality in his whole long career!) but
simply from the cumulative emotional impact of this simple, powerful story
and its probing revelation of human character, desire, and chagrin.
By the time the film ended, I felt wrung out, disoriented, happy and deeply
sad at the same time: it's the experience the Greeks wanted their tragedies
to convey to the spectator; they spoke of "katharsis." I experienced it
firsthand when I had the great good fortune to see a production (in English)
of "Medea." I walked away in tears and scarcely able to think straight for
an hour or so.
The same thing happened with "Wild Strawberries." This is one of the
handful of films I unhesitatingly rate a "ten."
A side note: I watched the Criterion Collection DVD. Before the film
itself, I watched the hour-long interview conducted in 1998 by Jorn Donner
included on the disc. It was remarkable to see how the film Bergman shot
ca. 1957 contains many elements that were to be present in his later
life--like a foreshadowing of his own old age.
