Legendary auteur Ingmar Bergman’s richest and most humane work, an awards-winning masterpiece. Widowed seventy-eight-year-old Dr. Isak Borg, a former medical doctor and professor, has retreated from any human contact, partly his own want but partly the decision of others who do not want to spend time with him because of his cold demeanors. He is traveling from his home in Stockholm to Lund to accept an honorary degree. Instead of flying as planned, he decides to take the day long drive instead. The many stops and encounters along the way make him reminiscent about various parts of his life. Being forced to face his past and accept the inevitability of his approaching death, Isak starts a journey of self-reflection and self-confession.
