Both can be found on the US Blu-ray released by Criterion. Honestly, I've never thought there was a dull moment in the longer cut, and after seeing I can't imagine the story with anything removed. Boasting an unforgettable magical Christmas Eve, an atmosphere of golden nostalgia and bleak storms, elegant dining scenes, chilling ghostly encounters -both comforting and terrifying, fantastic sets (most notably the surreal curio shop), and a haunting climax that is one of the greatest example of mysticism in cinema. Meanwhile, as always with Bergman (or nearly always, given the final scene of Jungfrukällan (The Virgin Spring, 1959)), the question of God’s existence is much more open. It is always original and fascinating. Also, there is another scene during whigh the actors are performing in an almost empty theater hall. It is truly a piece of art, and I can't say that about 99.9 percent of all movies I've ever seen. At one point aptly described by Gustav Adolf as a bully, he targets Alexander and exerts his control over the boy with a barrage of invasive gestures: taps, pats, prods, strokes, clutches, all deployed with infuriating condescension and visible nastiness. The third major setting of Fanny and Alexander is Isak Jacobi’s previously glimpsed shop, which, in the film’s fifth act, ‘Demons’, is a place thick with the intoxicating perfume of magic and mystery. How late will the start of the Nativity play be this year? An extravagant, flawless film, superbly crafted, with a great story and acting, exquisitely written and photographed. If you are an Australian resident, any donations over $2 are tax deductible. This is a fitting treatment of his triumph.

Fanny and Alexander (Swedish: Fanny och Alexander) is a 1982 historical drama film written and directed by Ingmar Bergman.The plot focuses on two siblings and their large family in Uppsala, Sweden during the first decade of the twentieth century.

I love the long cut. Every frame, movement of the camera, set, actor, costume, line of dialogue is almost faultless. Criticized at his university, drowning in a sea of debt, and trapped in a stifling marriage, he takes out his rage on his poor wife Lydia (Christina Schollin), most notably in an agonizing tour-de-force scene that fully illustrates the couple’s long history and ever-repeating routine of bitter attacks and pitiful consolations. Based on this series, he cut together a 190 minutes long theatrical version that misses out on roughly two hours of material. I used to do that all the time when reading Roger's reviews until after I saw the film. The original 188-minute international release is here, of course, in all its original glory. The perpetrator gets his comeupance. A absolute masterpiece rom Bergmann which pans 2 disc and 5 hours . ‘Fanny and Alexander’: More TV vs. theatrical In the shorter version, Emilie’s reasons for this obviously ill match are never made clear, but in the longer version we early on learn that the young and beautiful Emilie has had lovers behind Oscar’s back. Though he is a fairly quiet and passive character as far as protagonists go, Alexander visibly emerges from his experiences a much wiser person. In Fanny and Alexander, the institution of science is replaced by that of religion, though what matters is not what each one actually consists of, but rather the stance of power it allows its appointed spokesmen. Bergman does to Sweden (in this case the city of Uppsala) what Woody Allen does to New York City: he makes you want to be there, whether it is the interior of a cozy house or a rainy street with colorful houses.
