When a woman dying of cancer in early twentieth-century Sweden is visited by her two sisters, long-repressed feelings between the siblings rise to the surface. Cries and Whispers (1972) is a dark, psychological drama featuring memorable performances by Liv Ullmann, Harriet Andersson and Ingrid Thulin. Fifth installment in the Bergman monthly series at Deptford Cinema.

Directed by Ingmar Bergman

"Cries and Whispers is like no movie I've seen before, and like no movie Ingmar Bergman has made before; although we are all likely to see many films in our lives, there will be few like this one. It is hypnotic, disturbing, frightening.” - Roger Ebert, 1973
