(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.”
