Bergman defines “The Hour of the Wolf” as

“The time between midnight and dawn when most people die, when sleep is deepest, when nightmares are most palatable. It is the hour when the sleepless are pursued by their sharpest anxieties, when ghosts and demons hold sway. The hour of the wolf is also the hour when most children are born." 

Isn’t it so that old people who have been living together all their lives begin to resemble each other? In the end, they have so much in common that not only their thoughts, but also their faces take on the same expression. I want us to grow so old together that we think each other’s thoughts, that we get small, dried-up, wrinkled faces that are exactly alike.
—  Hour Of The Wolf (1968), Dir. Ingmar Bergman
