The movie is astonishingly beautiful. The cinematography is by Bergman's longtime collaborator Sven Nykvist.

A masterpiece.

If the uncut Fanny and Alexander is Bergman's greatest work, as I think, it's because it's his most inclusive. He shows almost everything: all his moods, conflicts, styles and many of his favorite actors.

The result was one of Bergman's most haunting and suggestive films.

Emerges as a sumptuously produced period piece that is also a rich tapestry of childhood memoirs and moods, fear and fancy, employing all the manners and means of the best of cinematic theatrical from high and low comedy to darkest tragedy with detours into the gothic, the ghostly and the gruesome. (Review of Original Release)

One of his (Bergman's) most life-affirming films.
90
Bergman locates a generosity and élan that make F&A feel like his youngest film.

The results are quite frightening and far superior to the lengthy gloom and doom that fill many earlier Bergman films. A magical movie, Fanny and Alexander is likely to be the achievement for which Bergman will be most remembered. (Review of Original Release)
