Brother Carl by Susan Sontag

According to Edgardo Cozarinsky, the Argentine film critic: "There is something recognizably Scandinavian about Brother Carl: un-easy, puzzling exchanges between its characters, with brooding, ever-present nature surrounding them. The interplay of formal speech and plain silence recalls Dreyer's Gertrud (rather than Bergman's The Silence and Persona). On closer inspection, though, it is unlike any other Scandinavian film. The miracles, unlike that in Dreyer's Ordet, are not 'real' ones. But they are the only kind these characters can afford. Brother Carl is an outsider's commentary, with very personal variations, on those motifs that filmgoers associate with the Scandinavian film tradition. And much of its elusive fascination depends on this flexible distance btween material that may seem familiar and the fresh look that establishes its own perspective."

Brother Carl was shot in and around Stockholm in 1970 and had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in 1971. It was shows at the San Francisco, Chicago, and London film festivals, and had its U.S. theatrical premiere in 1972.
