PROGRAM NOTE

"Swedish cinema is of course dominated by Ingmar Bergman and I subsequently discovered that this left many notable directors in his long shadow. In fact Elvira Madigan is a kind of masterpiece full of warmth and love and great beauty. Beauty of the human form and also nature and landscape. But what makes the film so poignant is the use of music, or to be specific the repetition of Mozart’s piano concerto Number 21 in C major. Such was the impact of this film that now the Concerto is now also known as Elvira Madigan." a(Mike Figgis)
