Sawdust And Tinsel (Imgmar Bergman, 1953)
« on: 24 Aug 2007 - 08:37 »

Tartan have just released:

SAWDUST AND TINSEL (1953)
Albert, an ageing circus owner has become involved with Anna, a young trapeze artist. On returning to his home town , he wants to revisit his wife and family but Anna is jealous. She's offered to a young actor but neither she nor Albert find contentment and are forced back into each other's arms and the mutually destructive relationship.
In Bergman's hands, the circus becomes the ideal metaphor for the way people perform in order to fulfill dreams and desires. Anna is played by Harriet Anderson, who made her acting debut in the director's Summer With Monika, has also appeared in Through A Glass Darkly, and Fanny And Alexander.

DVD extras include: trailer     Original academy presentation

Please note:  For its 50th anniversary, a restored and remastered version of Bergman’s classic THE SEVENTH SEAL  is re-released in cinemas nationwide from 20 July before being available on both DVD and Blu-ray formats on 24 September.

Sawdust and Tinsel is one of my favorite Bergman films. It's also the first collaboration between Ingmar and Sven Nyquist, the cameraman of many of his later films.
  p.s. your avatar is my favorite shot fom Milano Calibro 9.

He twitches his shoulder throughout the film like he's remembering that pigeon! It always cracks me up too.

I know  ::)

That same actor does the whole shoulder thing in another Di Leo film - think it might be LA MALA ORDINA.
