Wild Strawberries is a beautiful film about being old, full of symbolisms and immense depth. Considering the era that it was made, the 50's, the way the story is told was an innovating idea for a film.
Most of all this is a film about redemption, about accepting and regretting wrong behaviours and decisions in life. It also questions what is there beyond death.

Fantastic performance by Victor Sjortrom.

Although I think this film is a very well made piece of cinema, I thought that I would be more impressed with it than I was. That's why I can't give it a higher rate. Probably in a rewatch, someday, I can apreciate it even more.
