Ingmar Bergman’s PERSONA

Ingmar Bergman’s PERSONA

Ingmar Bergman · Sweden · 1966 · 83 mins · Not Rated · Swedish with subtitles
IMDbRotten Tomatoes

By the mid-sixties, Ingmar Bergman had already conjured many of the cinema’s most unforgettable images. But with the radical “Persona,” he attained new levels of visual poetry. In the first of a series of legendary performances for Bergman, Liv Ullmann plays a stage actor who has inexplicably gone mute; an equally mesmerizing Bibi Andersson is the garrulous young nurse caring for her in a remote island cottage. While isolated together there, the women undergo a mysterious spiritual and emotional transference. Performed with astonishing nuance and shot in stark contrast and soft light by Sven Nykvist, the influential “Persona” is a penetrating, dreamlike work of profound psychological depth. --Criterion Collection
