After the death of her husband, Emilie Ekdahl, a theater company owner in Uppsala, marries a bishop and moves in with her two children, Alexander and Fanny. The kids feel utterly miserable in this austere new setting, particularly Alexander who’s constantly fighting his cruel stepfather. But that is until they meet Isak, a Jewish antiques dealer, who helps them move out.

“I conceived Fanny and Alexander during the fall of 1978, a time when everything around me left me in darkest despair. But I wrote the screenplay during the spring of 1979, and by that time many things had eased up (…) I found myself liberated suddenly. I think that Fanny and Alexander benefited from my relief.”
