About the Director
Ernst Ingmar Bergman (July 1918 , July 2007) was a Swedish director, writer, and producer who worked in film, television, theatre and radio. He is recognized as one of the most accomplished and influential auteurs of all time, and is most famous for films such as The Seventh Seal (1957), Wild Strawberries (1957), Persona (1966), Cries and Whispers (1972) and Fanny and Alexander (1982).
Also well-regarded are works such as Winter Light (1963), The Silence (1963), and Scenes from a Marriage (1973).
Bergman directed over 60 films and documentaries for cinematic release and for television, most of which he also wrote. He also directed over 170 plays. From 1953 he forged a powerful creative partnership with his full-time cinematographer Sven Nykvist.
Among his company of actors were Harriet and Bibi Andersson, Liv Ullmann, Gunnar Bjornstrand, Erland Josephson, Ingrid Thulin and Max von Sydow.
Most of his films were set in Sweden, and numerous films from Through a Glass Darkly (1961) onward were filmed on the island of Faro.
His work often dealt with death, illness, faith, betrayal, bleakness and insanity. Philip French referred to Bergman as "one of the greatest artists of the 20th century [...] he found in literature and the performing arts a way of both recreating and questioning the human condition." Mick LaSalle argued, "Like Virginia Woolf and James Joyce in literature, Ingmar Bergman strove to capture and illuminate the mystery, ecstasy and fullness of life, by concentrating on individual consciousness and essential moments. His achievement is unsurpassed."
