Great Moments in Movie History: Fanny and Alexander (1982)

After bringing the Great Moments in Movie History series back from the dead last week, I realized how much fun I have making these things. And hopefully, you all enjoy them too. So I’m going to make a half-assed attempt at turning it into a weekly Friday feature. If I can get into the habit, I’ll use my whole ass and make it a weekly feature for good. Today’s great moment comes to us via Sweden’s very own Dr. Doom, Ingmar Bergman, and his 1982 epic Fanny and Alexander. Frankly, there’s one scene that instantly comes to mind whenever I think of this movie. And it’s been memorialized with stick figures now.

    Hehe, forgot that scene. The more tragic ones came to my mind. But that wouldn’t be funny so good thing you chose this. Nice christmas tree btw.

    • Thanks! It’s the same tree that I used in an earlier Fargo “Great Moments”, although I had to add garland and ornaments.

      I was so surprised by this scene because it’s an art film… and then smack in the middle of it, there’s a flatulence joke.

  2. This is the weirdest scene of the movie! However, very funny moment!

  3. Haha I love this scene. An equally good choice would be Gunnar Björnstrand wearing makeup and singing or the dance around the mansion but this scene is excellent too. I love how you gave Alexander the same shirt he’s wearing in the film. Brilliant.

    I love Fanny and Alexander and I also love this feature John! Your “Zombie” was my desktop picture at work for quite a while!
