The strangest and most disturbing of the films Bergman shot on the island of Fårö, Hour of the Wolf stars Max von Sydow as a haunted painter living in voluntary exile with his wife (Liv Ullmann). When the couple are invited to a nearby castle for dinner, things start to go wrong with a vengeance as a coven of sinister aristocrats hastens the artist’s psychological deterioration. This film is charged with a nightmarish power and contains dreamlike effects that brilliantly underscore the tale’s horrific elements. In Swedish and Norwegian with English subtitles.
