In 1846, Vogler's Magnetic Health Theater has developed quite a controversial reputation for its mesmerizing performances. The troupe consists of magician Dr. Albert Emanuel Vogler, his assistant Aman (his wife Manda disguised as a man), Granny the elderly potion mistress, coach driver Simson, and the sly barker Tubal. On the outskirts of Stockholm, Consul Abraham Egerman, Police Chief Starbeck, and Dr. Vergerus, the Royal Medical Adviser meet and detain them. These men believe the magician to be a charlatan, and are suspicious of his supposedly astonishing magic show, and demand to inspect it for themselves before it is shown to the general public. So a private show is performed as Vergerus and Vogler engage in their own battle of wills. Who will win this conflict between science and superstition?

Smiles of a summer night by Ingmar Bergman( Visual )

12 editions published between 1955 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After fifteen films that received mostly local acclaim, the 1955 comedy Smiles of a summer night (sommarnattens leende) at last ushered in an international audience for Ingmar Bergman. In turn-of-the-century Sweden, four men and four women attempt to navigate the laws of attraction. During a weekend in the country, the women collude to force the men's hands in matters of the heart, exposing their pretensions and insecurities along the way. Chock-full of flirtatious propositions and sharp witticisms delivered by such Swedish screen legends as Gunnar Björnstrand and Harriet Andersson, Smiles of a summer night is one of cinema's great erotic comedies
Här har du ditt liv = Here is your life by Jan Troell( Visual )

4 editions published in 2015 in Swedish and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This mesmerizing debut by the great Swedish director Jan Troell (The Emigrants, The New Land) is an epic bildungsroman and a multilayered representation of early twentieth-century Sweden. Based on a series of semi-autobiographical novels by Nobel Prize winner Eyvind Johnson, the film follows a working-class boy's development, from naive teenager to intellectually curious young adult, from logger to movie projectionist to politically engaged man of the people--all set against the backdrop of a slowly industrializing rural landscape. With its mix of modernist visual ingenuity and elegantly structured storytelling, this enchanting film--presented here in its original nearly three-hour cut--is a reminder that Troell is one of European cinema's greatest and most sensitive illuminators of the human condition
