Liv Ullman gives a strong lead performance as An-Magritt, a young girl born out of wedlock in 17th century rural Norway. This society is completely dominated by men, ...

Goodbye Mr. B: Death Of A Film Giant

 Tuesday, July 31-------It perhaps seemed improbable that one of the world's funniest filmmakers was a devoted acolyte of one of the world's most serious. But that was the case for Woody Allen, whose devotion to the Swedish filmmaker Ingmar Bergman was a life-long obsession. He often referenced the great director in his films. In ANNIE HALL, in a scene that all hardcore cinephiles can relate to, Woody refuses to go to a screening of Bergman's FACE TO FACE because he and Diane Keato...

To salute the im...

Ingmar Bergman's Saraband premieres on Swedish TV

user
It wasn’t shown first at Cannes or Venice this year, instead Saraband , Ingmar Bergman’s latest film made for television, premiered on SVT1 - Sveriges Television on December 1. Television is where the film will stay, as Bergman refuses to allow it to be shown in movie theaters in Sweden.
