One of the few films that Ingmar Bergman directed but did not write, this 1960 feature recounts a 14th-century Swedish legend on the abundance of God’s grace. The period details are magnificently worked into the narrative, and the pace and economy of the tortured Swede’s storytelling make his metaphysics infinitely easier to take. In Swedish and German with subtitles.
