Scenes from Ingmar Bergman's "Wild Strawberries"
"The Doctoral Promotion was accompanied by Trumpet Fanfares, Bells
Ringing, Field-Cannon Salutes, masses of
people, the giant procession from the University to the Cathedral, the
white-dressed garland girls, royalty, old age, wisdom, beautiful music,
stately Latin sentences which echoed off the high vaulted walls, the
students, women in bright magnificent dresses - this strange rite with
its heavy symbolism, as if in a dream." (From Wild Strawberries)
The secret place in the woods where the wild berries grow.
