Cries and Whispers and Vanina Vanini

Part of the SummerScape film series: Chopin and the Image of Romanticism

Cries and Whispers
(Ingmar Bergman, 1972, Sweden, 106 minutes)

Vanina Vanini
(Roberto Rossellini, 1961, Italy, 127 minutes)

Ingmar Bergman’s most moving and mysterious film, Cries and Whispers (1972), explicitly emulates musical structures and associates Chopin’s Mazurka in A minor (Op. 17, No. 4, 1833) with the movement of memory. It will be paired with Roberto Rossellini’s adaptation of Stendhal’s short story “Vanina Vanini.”
