Take a visual break. Now that all of the preparation, planning and organizing the perfect family Christmas get together is over. Sit in that comfy recliner, kick back and travel back in time (even though you have to read sub-titles) to watch Fanny and Alexander’s best Christmas which would end up being their worst Christmas.
Depending on which version you watch it is 3-4 hours long and it is best to have your mind set on a Mini Series Adult Drama or a Downton Abbey type story only in Swedish.
The 1983 Ingmar Berman Film was his last movie and some say it was his best movie; Ingmar was nominated for an Oscar for Directing and the Screenplay written directly for the Screen. It won the Oscar for Sven Nykvist for Cinematography, Art Set Decoration for Anna Asp and Best Foreign Language Film for Sweden.
The vintage Christmas scenes at the beginning of the movie are like visual Christmas Candy for your eyes.
