Bergman's poignant tribute to his mother is made up entirely of photographs from his personal family album. With no voice-over and only the occasional inter-title Bergman lets the photos speak for themselves, aided only by a sparse musical track

If a picture is worth a thousand words then this film is worth a million. Beautiful, haunting and sad Bergman's photo-montage tribute to his mother is incredible. As good as, if not better than, THE SEVENTH SEAL.
