Autumn Sonata Quotes

Halvar Björk as Viktor

  • (Halvar Björk) "One must learn to live. I practice every day. My biggest obstacle is I don't know who I am. I grope blindly. If anyone loves me as I am I may dare at last to look at myself. For me, that possibility is fairly remote."
  • (Halvar Björk) "I'd like to tell her just for once that she is loved whole-heartedly but I can't say it in such a way that she'd believe me. I can't find the right words."

Liv Ullmann as Eva

  • (Liv Ullmann) "There can be no forgiveness."
  • (Liv Ullmann) "There's no dividing line, no insurmountable wall. I know it can't be described. It's a world of liberated feelings. Do you know what I mean? To me, man is a tremendous creation, an inconceivable thought. In man is everything, from the highest to lowest. Everything exists side by side. Realities, not only the reality we perceive with our dull senses, but a tumult of realities arching above each other inside and outside. It's just fear and priggishness to believe in limits. There are no limits, neither to thoughts nor feelings. It's anxiety that sets limits."
  • (Liv Ullmann) "You talk of my hatred. Your hatred was no less."
  • (Liv Ullmann) "All that was sensitive and delicate, you attacked. All that was alive, you tried to smother."
  • (Liv Ullmann) "I will never let you vanish out of my life again. I'm going to persist. I won't give up, even if it is too late. I don't think it is too late. It must not be too late."
  • (Liv Ullmann) "You managed to injure me for life, just as you are injured."
  • (Liv Ullmann) "The mother's injuries are to be handed down to the daughter. The mother's failures are to be paid for by the daughter. The mother's unhappiness is to be the daughter's unhappiness. It's as if the umbilical cord had never been cut."
  • (Liv Ullmann) "Maybe everything is already too late."
  • (Liv Ullmann) "Look at me, mama. Look at Helena."
  • (Ingrid Bergman) "You can't blame me entirely."
  • (Liv Ullmann) "You expect an exception for you. You've set up a sort of discount system with life but one day you'll see that your agreement is one-sided."
  • (Liv Ullmann) "Are the daughter's miseries the mother's triumphs?"
  • (Liv Ullmann) "But one thing I did understand: not a shred of the real me could be loved or accepted. I didn't dare to be myself even when I was alone because I hated what was my own."

Ingrid Bergman as Charlotte Andergast

  • (Ingrid Bergman) "Chopin was emotional, but not mawkish. Feeling is very far from sentimentality, The preulde tells of pain, not reverie. It hurts, but he doesn't show it."
  • (Ingrid Bergman) "It was all done in the name of love. Everything is possible and is done in the name of love and solicitude."
  • (Ingrid Bergman) "I feel so shut out, I'm always homesick. But when I get home. I find it's something else I'm longing for."
  • (Ingrid Bergman) "Only through music I did have a chance to show my feelings."
  • (Ingrid Bergman) "I'm seized by fear and see a horrible picture of myself. I have never grown up. My face and my body have aged. I acquire memories and experiences but inside all that I haven't even been born. I can't remember any faces not even my own."
  • (Ingrid Bergman) "A sense of reality is a matter of talent. Most people lack that talent and maybe it's just as well."
