Wild Strawberries (1957) - (dir: Ingmar Bergman) Belgian poster

This is an original 14" x 20.5" Belgian hand litho poster for the 1957 Ingmar Bergman film Wild Strawberries AKA Smultronstallet written by Ingmar Bergman and starring Victor Sjostrom as Professor Isak Borg. Plot summary: During a road trip from Stockholm to Lund in his 1937 black Packard limousine, 78-year-old Dr. Isak Borg does an introspective review of his troubled past as it passes before him in vivid dreams. He travels with his pregnant daughter-in-law Marianne [Ingrid Thulin], the wife of his only son Evald [Gunnar Bjornstrand], who objects to her pregnancy. The two also meet hitchhikers who cause Borg to have more visions of his troubled past, deeply marred by the way others have seen him and his cold and selfish personality. By the time Borg reaches Lund and receives the award for which the trip has been made, he gets closure and is finally at peace with himself.
