Winter Light is a beautiful film. Not thematically, its incredibly sad, but it's beautiful to look at and to take part in. The film begins with a lengthy sermon to introduce the characters, and then looks at the pastor, who no longer hears the voice of God and worries his faith is just a trick of the mind. Its claustrophic use of the church for a good 40 minutes, finally opens up into the snow covered outdoors, I literally drew breath at the change of scene. But its this involvement in the movie which highlights its quality. The relationships and questions shown in the film are ones we have probably all asked ourselves, and with performances as real as these, its hard not to be swept in all the talk. A great and thoughtful movie.

Wie Bergman und sein Kameramann Sven Nykvest in einer Dorfkirche das Sonnenlicht auf seinem Weg durch den Raum festhalten. Nattvardsgästerna - ein Film über das Licht. Ich habe …
