Encyclopedia > Autumn Sonata

Höstsonaten is a 1978 Swedish film which tells the story of a famous pianist who confronts her neglected daughters. Ingmar Bergman directed and wrote the screenplay. Ingrid Bergman, Liv Ullmann and Lena Nyman star.

It was nominated for Academy Awards for Best Actress in a Leading Role (Ingrid Bergman) and Norway because of Ingmar Bergman's tax problems with the government of Sweden. It was Ingrid Bergman's last theatrical performance.

Autumn Sonata was remade in 2003 as Tahzeeb, a Hindi language production.

Although "Autumn Sonata" touches on many of Bergman's favourite themes, the mother and daughter angle gives a freshness to the film and makes the quality of the acting all the more treasurable.
"Autumn Sonata" tends to be forgotten in comparison with Bergman's other late period works, both those made in exile from Sweden and those made before such as "Cries and Whispers" and the trimphant home-coming "Fanny and Alexander" both of which richly deserved Oscars.
Although "Autumn Sonata" is not as technically adventurous or as stunning visually as others, Ingrid Bergman deserved more than the Oscar nomination she received and the awards bestowed upon the film as a whole were richly deserved.
Autumn Sonata (1285 words)
Autumn Sonata grows a bit too static and its rhetoric a little too theatrical for the movie to reach the supreme level of quality of Bergman's otherwise similar Cries and Whispers.
The other idea crucial to Autumn Sonata that introduces itself in this scene is the impossibility, despite such physical proximity, of really seeing the people before us, of achieving a complete or even a reliable connection with their thoughts and feelings.
The freshness and unexpectedness of Eva's accusations are crucial components in the staggering potency of Autumn Sonata, and I hesitate to delve much further into the specific reasons of her animosity, lest I dilute the impact of the film.
