• The Swedish actor Erland Josephson died this week at age eighty-eight. We can think of no better tribute to the great actor (known especially for his commanding and playful performances in such films by Ingmar Bergman as Cries and Whispers, Scenes from a Marriage, Fanny and Alexander, and Saraband) than this lovely clip from a 2003 Criterion interview with Liv Ullmann, in which the actress talks about her frequent costar and beloved friend.

    He was a great actor whose face could communicate everything from joy, to sadness. He will be truly missed, but never forgotten.

    what impressed me about erland was his range, that he could do comedy w/ the same exactitude that he did drama. he did not get the recognition of his peers max von sydow or christopher plummer, but was in their league.
