Indelible Film Images: Girl with Hyacinths

Girl with Hyacinths (1950) – dir. Hasse Ekman

Starring: Eva Henning, Ulf Palme, Birgit Tengroth, Anders Ek, Marianne Löfgren, Gösta Cederlund, Karl-Arne Holmsten, Keve Hjelm, Anne-Marie Brunius, Gudrun Brost

Cinematography: Göran Strindberg

(Note: I saw the film at the recent Hasse Ekman retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, but I don’t think you can find Ekman’s films on DVD in the US unless they are bootleg copies – and, of course, I don’t recommend those. Second note: Ingmar Bergman once referred to Girl with Hyacinths as “an absolute masterpiece. 24 carats. Perfect.”)
