"Chekhov is very important in Sweden; there's some sort of affinity between the Russian and the Swedish soul. Chekhov is very concerned with the light in the same way that Bergman is so sensitive to the light in his films. The way Chekhov describes the light coming down on the cherry orchard, it seems to me to be a very Nordic light, which in the morning is very clear and beautiful." – Josephson in The New York Times, 1988
