Ingmar Bergman, R.I.P.

Posted by dumpendebat

Ingmar Bergman, possibly the greatest filmmaker of all time, died on Monday, 30 July 2007, at the age of 89. It would be difficult to exaggerate the contribution he made to cinema. During the 1960s and 1970s, when he was at his peak, his creative fecundity was simply incredible, both in quality and quantity. Consider just these ten films, readers:

Picture of film Through A Glass Darkly
Såsom i en spegel (Through A Glass Darkly) – 1961
Picture of Gunnar Björnstrand in Winter Light
Nattvardsgästerna (Winter Light) – 1962
Picture of film The Silence
Tystnaden (The Silence) – 1963
Picture of film Persona
Persona – 1966
Picture of film Hour Of The Wolf
Vargtimmen (Hour Of The Wolf) – 1968
Picture of film Shame
Skammen (Shame) – 1968
Picture of film The Passion of Anna
En Passion (The Passion Of Anna) – 1969
Picture of film Cries And Whispers
Viskningar och rop (Cries And Whispers) – 1972
Picture of film Scenes From a Marriage
Scener ur ett äktenskap (Scenes From A Marriage) – 1973
Picture of film Autumn Sonata
Höstsonaten (Autumn Sonata) – 1978

These ten films, which are ten of the best films ever made, are just the highlights — the best of the twenty-four films Bergman made from 1960 to 1979.

The world lost a genius on 30 July.

  1. Recently watched VIRGIN SPRING w/commentary by Ang Lee. Amazing tension throughout the entire film–“exhausting” maybe is the right word. Looking forward to the renewed interest that always comes with the death of such an artist.

  2. I hope there’ll be some renewed interest. Bergman’s reputation has suffered since the 1970s, and it doesn’t seem to me like he’s got a lot of fans today, even among self-described “film buffs.” Thankfully, his major work, including all ten of the movies I mention above, is still in print, some of them via the Criterion Collection and others from MGM. They’re all good DVDs.

    (What’s not good is the state of Andrei Tarkovsky DVD releases. Apart from the two titles available from Criterion, there aren’t any Tarkovsky DVD releases that are worth a damn, at least not in Region 1.)

  3. “Winter Light” by Ingmar Bergman (1962) is the second part of his “religious trilogy” (the first, “Through Glass Darkly” – 1960, and the third, “Silence” – 1962). In the first film, the basic (for achieving an enlightened life) human abilities – to love without psychological defensiveness and to be vital without de-sublimation, that together as a sacred combination make human beings spiritual creatures, leave the existential circumstances of human life and retreat [in]to the “heavens”. In the third film of the trilogy “god” [is “dead”] (the form in which unity of human love and human vitality take place outside life) (has “died”) and human beings have to start from the beginning. But “Winter Light” depicts a situation when “god is silent”, and human beings slowly grow towards the understanding that it is up to them to return their libidinous vitality back into (earthly) life[, existence]. [All the films in Bergman’ trilogy] (In all of the films of trilogy Bergman’s) point(s) about spiritual life are mediated by a scrupulous psychological analysis of the characters.
    “Winter light” is a metaphor of light of love/vitality in a condition of being distant from human life[, from everyday being/existence]. The film depicts the Christian faith of seven characters – Pastor Tomas Ericsson and the six parishioners of his Church (three men and three women). Each protagonist‘s faith is uniquely created by their individual intelligence and will [by] (in) the unique circumstance(s) of each of their lives. Bergman approaches each character’s religious belief as a sacred reality, as a precious creation. Some of the personages he personally admires, some he respects and others are objects of his “loyal criticism” that is full of empathy and [is made in] good faith.
    The frankness and gracious intensity with which the director depicts the human destinies and encounters between the characters are overwhelming, as much as actors’ performances make each individual soul radiate its own truth. Each [personality] (personage) is represented as having been formed by [their own] life[, experience] and human history, nothing is fabricated in order to entertain or sentimentally please the audience. With all seriousness, the film is so congruent with the human emotions that it is taken inside (human) [our] soul[a] as naturally as air for our lungs.
    The film addresses Christians of various denominations, as much as people of other beliefs and non-believers with equal authority, and is an icon of not only philosophical(,) but humanistic cinema.
    The film confirms that Bergman’s cinema is made for [all centuries, for] 21st (century) even more (than it was for 20th century).
