r.i.p erland josephson

i can't believe that i found out about erland josephson's death from the oscar's memorial tribute. it makes my heart hurt a little.



some beautiful roles played by this man:

from fanny and alexander - isak is one of my favorite characters in cinema

from saraband, bergman revisits johan and marianne... i love the scenes where he is reading in his study and listening to bruckner

i wish i had been living in sweden when scenes from a marriage aired

so much love for this man. i wonder how liv ullmann is doing now that these two brilliant friends are gone. the gift they have given to the world brings tears to my eyes.

zoe: the house is a mess!

luca: everyone's been sick. sick people can't clean up houses.

zoe: i haven't been sick!

luca: you sure about that?

zoe: he's not afraid of anything, is he?

luca: no. he goes there and he stays.
