The Cinematheque will be showing Ingmar Bergman’s The Magician  at 9:30 pm Friday April 27. Their website says:

THE MAGICIAN
ANSIKTET; aka THE FACE
Sweden | 1958 | Ingmar Bergman

THE MAGICIAN
In 19th-century Stockholm, a traveling mesmerist and magician (Max von Sydow) runs afoul of a thoroughly rational, local medical examiner (Gunnar Björnstrand) who thinks he is a con man. A game of wits ensues. Ingmar Bergman’s gothic fable—part comedy, part horror film—is really an allegory about science and the supernatural. “Widely underrated…One of [Bergman’s] most genuinely enjoyable films.” –Time Out Film Guide. Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 101 min.
