Part of a special section on Swedish filmmaker Ingmar Bergman. The writer considers Bergman's career. For many years a leading light in the cultural life of Sweden, Bergman is omnipresent in cinema, theater, and television. His curiosity and passionate interest in cinema has never flagged, and he has explored, experimented with, and defied the limits of this medium throughout his long career. However, he generally avoids interviews and very rarely becomes involved in public debate, preferring to let his work speak for him." [Art Index]

"The writer discusses European art films, with particular reference to Ingmar Bergman. He explores the contrasting cinematic styles of Hollywood and Europe and the history of the reception of European art films in America. He finds that for American audiences "art" and "European" connoted explicit depiction of sex and drugs rather than political or aesthetic commitment, but that these features became less exportable with the advent of the "sexual revolution," the making of European "adult" films in the mid 1960s, and the relaxation of American censorship. He notes, however, that the genre has remained a cultural and artistic force, especially for more or less mainstream American directors from Arthur Penn to Woody Allen and Martin Scorsese to Francis Ford Coppola. He concludes by discussing Bergman's Images--My Life in Film and the process of reinscribing Bergman into a film history other than that of the European auteur/national cinema." [Art Index]

His name is often coupled with Ingmar Bergman's; their dazzling collaboration stretched over most of three decades, producing such classic films as Sawdust and Tinsel (1953), Through a Glass Darkly (1961), and Scenes from a Marriage (1973)."

Considers how these three middle works were crucial not only to Bergman's artistic development but also are a cultural marker for the transition from modernism to postmodernism. Describes how the incredible austerity of these films have made audiences seek out more kinetic films by Bergman and examines the aesthetic and philosophical content of the three films."

As a symptom of the times, the film is worth discussing. His reasons for making the movie may have included money and its anti-Soviet message. Although it is one of the weakest pictures in his filmography, it remains an interesting artifact." [International Index to the Performing Arts]

"From the late 1950s until at least the mid-1970s, Ingmar Bergman represented for a lot of people cinema's highest claim to be taken as seriously as literature, painting, or music. He confronted all the grand modernist themes--alienation, despair, faith, doubt, Eros, Thanatos, the vocation of the artist, and the search for meaning in an absurd universe. The vogue for Bergman climaxed in the early 1970s, with two of his films featuring in a critics' poll of all-time best movies as well as a number of Oscar nominations for his 1972 film Cries and Whispers. However, after that his reputation suffered a gradual eclipse. The writer discusses Bergman's reputation, his films, and art-house filmmaking." [Art Index]

The film, which is based on a partly autobiographical script by Ingmar Bergman, focuses on the creative process of a nameless elderly writer, who dreams up an attractive muse. To achieve the very naturalistic look the film required, Persson attempted to use as much natural light as possible. Shooting with an Arri 535A camera, he opted to use Fuji film stocks--500 ASA for interiors and 125 ASA for exteriors--which have a nice soft look and offer very nice skin tones." [Art Index]

"The films of Ingmar Bergman are discussed on the occasion of the release of a selection of them on DVD. During a lengthy career, Bergman has created films that can be regarded as honest and passionate inquiries that investigate the nature of artistic commitment, death, relationships between husbands and wives and parents and children, and God's existence. Aside from their thematic richness, his films brilliantly evince an ability to communicate his characters' interior landscapes through evocative sound and image. Though his films rarely contain wit or irony, and his occasionally unremitting sense of life as a vale of tears is ripe for parody, Bergam is a great filmmaker. In fact, there is no other director who can communicate the heart of his characters' psyches and souls as profoundly and intensely as he can." [Art Index]

"Film director Terence Davies discusses a scene from Ingmar Bergman's "Viskningar och rop" ("Cries and Whispers") that particularly impressed him. In the scene, a woman who has died of cancer seems to come back to life. The scene is treated very realistically but its intended meaning is metaphorical; it shows how death and the dead haunt the living. This impacted Davies emotionally becuase his father also died of cancer. The article is an excerpt from an interview conducted by Geoffrey Macnab." [International Index to the Performing Arts]

"A review of the Criterion five-disc DVD release of Fanny and Alexander (1982), a film by Ingmar Bergman. While the theatrical version of Fanny and Alexander can be obtained on a single Criterion DVD, the five-disc set is enthusiastically recommended, first and foremost because of the five-hour version of the film that it offers--this television version adds an epic dimension well worth the extended viewing time. Also particularly recommended is The Making of Fanny and Alexander, a documentary that allows viewers to participate, without any voice-over commentary or any added interviews, in a minuscule number of the setups that went into the construction of Bergman's magnificent edifice."

"The effect of aging on dramatic realization of old age: the example of Ingmar Bergman." The Gerontologist, Vol 32, Issue 6 739-743, 1992.
Ingmar Bergman's films Wild Strawberries and Fanny and Alexander can be viewed as two readings of the psychosocial world of old age. The picture of aging emerging from Wild Strawberries is dominated by pressure toward resolution, and Fanny and Alexander is governed by fragmentation. Closure and fragmentation are related to the artist's position in the life span at the time of creation. Whereas closure appears to be a midlife attempt to handle death anxiety and a sense of finality, fragmentation is the older Bergman's means of adapting to the experience of aging.

"Memories, Dreams, Screens." Quarterly Review of Film and Video v. 22 no. 2 (April/June 2005) p. 125-34
"The writer discusses films that use dreams and memories to convey the tension between remembering and repressing an unacceptable past. In Maya Deren's Meshes of the Afternoon, Ingmar Bergman's Persona, Robert Altman's Three Women, Samuel Beckett's Film, Christopher Nolan's Memento, and David Lynch's Mulholland Drive, repression frequently assumes a neuro-pathological form, in that the films tend to be motivated by characters with either hysterical transference (like an exchange of personalities) or a psychological ailment, such as amnesia, muteness, or paralysis. The psychic disturbances of the characters are often matched by a method of indirection, abstraction, looking away, as well as a host of disassociative devices that dissect the inner thoughts of a subjective consciousness attempting to deal with a horrible past event. Dissassociation, repetition, multiple strands, doublings, and character transgression place such a strain on reality and credibility that some films interrogate whether it is possible to unblock memory and reconstitute the past. The text itself may react to repression and the denial of reality by collapsing, experiencing a textual trauma that parallels mental breakdown." [Art Index]

"A review of Saraband, the latest film by Ingmar Bergman. The film marks the return of the characters Johan and Marianne from the film Scenes de la vie conjugale; 30 years on, they have aged and totally changed, and the film latches onto the miseries of age, using them to express its tenderness toward poor human beings and their physical distress. The stupefying mastery of the mis en scene and the precision of the acting equal and surpass what Bergman achieved in his greatest masterpieces. Indeed, Saraband is in one sense his greatest masterpiece, and in any case the most beautiful "last film" he has ever made." [Art Index]

He argues that the distance she maintains from the drama creates the film's beauty and very quickly obliterates its niceties." [Art Index]

This film initially seems to center on just four characters--Marianne, her ex husband Johan, Johan's son Henrik, and Henrik's daughter Karin--but also includes Anna, Henrik's late wife; Johan's servant, Ms Nilson; and Martha, who is Marianne and Johan's daughter. The whole film is characterized by this principle of proliferation, and, as the majesty of the film's shots develops, so does a feeling of something that is beyond spectacle and its recognized forms."

Saraband is set 30 years after Scenes and features Liv Ullman and Erland Josephson, who were in the earlier movie. It also introduces two new characters, Henrik and Karen. The film's premiere, on SVT, Swedish national television, is slated for fall 2003, and after that it will start to be distributed globally. In separate conversations, Ullman and Josephson discuss making the film." [Art Index]

"A review of Saraband, a film by Ingmar Bergman. The film is a kind of chamber piece comprised of ten parts, a prologue, and an epilogue. It can be seen as an extended epilogue to Scenes from a Marriage (1973)--with a couple reuniting 30 years after their marriage ended--but is actually richer and more complex than that might suggest. Like the stately court dance of its title, the film's elegant form contains but does not mask the terrors that lay within the parameters of the family romance." [Art Index]

"Vif, sans expression." Cahiers du Cinema no. 596 (December 2004) p. 26-8
"The writer discusses Saraband, a film by Ingmar Bergman. He introduces a scene in which Karin, a young cellist, breaks down under the demands of her father, who is making her play a Hindemith sonata while scrupulously following the composer's directions: "lively, without expression." Questioning how a 20-year-old girl can understand such an oxymoron, he argues that the subject of the film is, in a way, this relationship between life, death, and a "lack of expression."

"Ingmar Bergman's Saraband, revolves around a warring, tormented couple, Marianne and Johan, who have divorced and started new lives, but who have also lost touch with the past. Bergman's final film is a commandingly restrained work and--as the theme of classical musicianship suggests--very much a work that pays close attention to the nuances of performance." [Art Index]

"With director Ingmar Bergman having announced his retirement from filmmaking, it seems probable that his latest offering, Saraband, will be his last. In recent years, he had been turning his screenplays over to other directors, but having assumed the director's role again, he has come up with a movie that is vital, powerful, and magnificent. The film, described as a masterpiece by many of those who have seen it already, will be screened during the New York Film Festival in October." [Art Index]

"The writer comments on the universality of Bergman's The Seventh Seal. He explains that before he saw the film he thought that cinema would remain a superficial entertainment because it could not address serious philosophical questions. He recalls that what really attracted him to the film was its religious aspect. He comments on other aspects of the film that impressed him and concludes that Bergman's thoughtful manipulation of the journey or voyage narrative achieves a universal appeal." [Art Index]

"The writer compares and contrasts Ingmar Bergman's The Silence (1962) and Michelangelo Antonioni's The Passenger (1974), two of the great modernist films of their period. The genesis of both films lies in the era of French classical cinema and the rise of existentialism in philosophy and writing, the former of which produced one of France's great film directors in Marcel Carne and the latter of which produced one of its great modern writers in Albert Camus. Essentially, Bergman's film was a tight interior shoot, while Antonioni's film was a logistically complex location feature that also took in an extra country--Algeria." [Art Index]

"Ingmar Bergman's 1960 film, The Virgin Spring, was released recently on DVD. The film, which tells the story of a vain young girl who is raped and murdered on her way to church, finds Bergman lurching towards open-and-shut religiosity, broaching the possibility of holy abandonment only to seal it over in the end. The film is fundamentally a tale of the twilight of paganism and the uneasy but inevitable consolidation of Scandinavian Christianity." [Art Index]

"The effect of aging on dramatic realization of old age: the example of Ingmar Bergman." The Gerontologist, Vol 32, Issue 6 739-743, 1992.
Ingmar Bergman's films Wild Strawberries and Fanny and Alexander can be viewed as two readings of the psychosocial world of old age. The picture of aging emerging from Wild Strawberries is dominated by pressure toward resolution, and Fanny and Alexander is governed by fragmentation. Closure and fragmentation are related to the artist's position in the life span at the time of creation. Whereas closure appears to be a midlife attempt to handle death anxiety and a sense of finality, fragmentation is the older Bergman's means of adapting to the experience of aging.
