Fanny en Alexander

In Moscow last fall, the Swedish movie Fanny and Alexander was showing, and a scene of a Christmas banquet had a big impact on the viewers. There is a long table with wonderful food on it, and the camera begins at one end and very slowly, lovingly goes down the table, showing us turkeys, sauces, vegetables and all sorts of fantastic things. At that point, the Soviet audiences stood up and applauded.

Tom G. Palmer, Why Socialism Collapsed in Eastern Europe, Cato Policy Report, 12, 5, September/October 1990.
Het prentje: een veel jongere en bijzonder cool uitziende Ingmar Bergman. Het wondermooie Fanny och Alexander zag pas in 1982 het licht (filmpje).
