SVEN NYKVIST:
The time has come to thank, and I want to thank a man who I have had the fortune to work with for about twenty-five years on twenty-two pictures -- Ingmar Bergman. And I also want to thank the crew and the actors who have made my job so easy. And I want to make a special thank [you] to the American cinematographers who has been so nice to me and in accepting me and my work. Thank you very much indeed.
