Bernard Rose on

Cries and Whispers

Released 1972
Distributor New World Pictures

Brilliantly photographed by Bergman’s longtime cameraman Sven Nykvist, this 1972 film about the psychological gamesmanship among three sisters and their faithful servant was an arthouse hit even though initial distributors were loathe to pick it up – it fell to Roger Corman and New World Pictures to give Bergman’s film the boost it needed.
