Erland Josephson, 1923–2012

Feb 28, 2012

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.
