"Fanny and Alexander" more like just "Alexander"
she is more like a background character or a prop. This is Alex and the adult Ekdahls and Mr. Jacobi's film.
I thoroughly enjoyed the film. The art direction, cinematography, costuming, and the actors' performances were fantastic. I hope I'm not the only one, but I sensed a darkly comic undertone in some scenes and dialogue that I liked very much. Something else I must mention is the uncanny resemblance I noticed that the actress, Ewa Frölling, has to the actress, Emilia Clarke. There were moments where I was reminded of GOT.
I know I'll be firmly in the minority, but it left me a bit underwhelmed to be honest - I didn't really care for the characters and thought the story was incredibly thin given the running time. Give me Bergman's 1950s and '60s output any day.
