Twilight Room of the Soul: Hour of the Wolf (Vargtimmen)

Sat, Oct 27 / 5 pm
Directed by Ingmar Bergman
1968, Sweden, 90 min
Swedish with English subtitles

The strangest and most disturbing of the films Bergman shot on the island of Fårö, Hour of the Wolf, stars Max von Sydow as a haunted painter living in voluntary exile with his wife (Liv Ullmann). When the couple are invited to a nearby castle for dinner, things start to go wrong with a vengeance, as a coven of sinister aristocrats hastens the artist’s psychological deterioration. This gripping film is charged with a nightmarish power rare in the Bergman canon, and contains dreamlike effects that brilliantly underscore the tale’s horrific elements.


No name is more synonymous with the postwar explosion of international art-house cinema than Ingmar Bergman, a master storyteller who startled the world with his  stark intensity and naked pursuit of the most profound metaphysical and spiritual questions. This year is the centenary of Ingmar Bergman, who has proven to be,  from any perspective, one of the most important film directors of the last century. These eight films are his most challenging, thought provoking, stringent, emotional documents in a career which spanned 50 years. All of these films have recently been restored in new digital formats by Janus Films and are currently touring North America. Curated by Rory Runnells and Winnipeg Film Group Cinematheque. Special Thanks to Rory Runnells and Susan Algie.

Twilight Room of The Soul: The Universe of Ingmar Bergman is generously sponsored by George Toles, Kate, Ron and Jennifer Robinson, and Jonathan Walter.

Generously sponsored by William F. White International and IATSE 856.

    

Reviews

A brilliant Gothic fantasy about an artist who has disappeared, leaving only a diary; and through that diary we move into flashback to observe a classic case history of the Bergman hero haunted by darkness, demons and the creatures of his imagination until he is destroyed by them. - Time Out
