Tonight @ CINEFAMILY - INGMAR BERGMAN'S "The Magic Flute"

The Magic Flute, a comedic opera, is one of Bergman’s most unique and magical films. Bergman manages to achieve a perfect synthesis of drama and music, the visual and the aural. Lensed by the great Sven Nykvist, Bergman examines Mozart’s "Die Zauberflöte" by showcasing the theatrics of the production as much as the opera itself. Lively from the start, we follow the dashing Prince Tamino as he fights to save Pamina -- the lovely daughter of the Queen of the Night -- from a dastardly villain. Armed with a flute that can change men’s hearts, Tamino embarks on a fantastical journey to win his heart’s desire. By showing everything from backstage to the crowd and the opera in between, we are treated to an experience beyond film and theater.

Dir. Ingmar Bergman, 1975, 35mm, 135 min.
