Ingmar Bergman is still the doyen of cinema. He is known for masterpieces of controlled human emotion, exploring every facet of the personality in relentless detail. He wrote: "I had the possibility of corresponding with the world around me in a language that is literally spoken from soul to soul."

These two screenplays, liberally illustrated with production stills featurin

Well, come on, tell me what this movie's about! It must be about something. And you're the central character, or so we're assured. But how can the central character not say anything? How are we supposed to know what you're like?

Don't just look at me with those big eyes. Give me a hint. You mean that words are an inadequate way to communicate what we think and feel? That if we stopped talking for a minute and really listened, then we'd be able to hear the things that mattered? That most of the ti
Wherein I revisit Persona, a regrettable decision.

According to the man, since he won the Grand Prix at Cannes with Smiles of a Summer Night in 1956, his fame meant no-one would give him honest criticism, he said.
"There hasn't been anyone with whom I can discuss my scripts," he said.
"Even when the film is done, there is no-one I can show it to who gives his sincere opinion. There is silence."

Mr Bergman, step this way.

Two screenplays that each focus on two characters, but which show vastly different approaches to the human psyche, as well as to screen writing and the films that were resultant.

One of the most erotic scenes I've read. Bergman is such a complex writer and I like the fact that there are so many interpretations to what's really happening to these two women. Layers. So many layers. For me, that's very much like real life. There are so many layers to what's happening at any given point, between what someone's actually saying, and all the other layers of subtext that's really happening underneath.

(Of course I'm currently working on this scene in my acting class so I can't r
I’m not crazy about Bergman, I’ve never been. But I like him in some way. He in some way broke the bariers to talk about ”myself”, my background, and even about ”my sickness”. With Bergman, Shame as a framed moral, changed to a discoursive way of behaviour …
This was a movie first -with beautiful actresses- and then a book. And still the book is better than the movie.
