Ingmar Bergman Dead at 89
Legendary Swedish director Ingmar Bergman died yesterday at home in Faro, Sweden. He was 89.
Through more than 50 films, Bergman's vision encompassed all the extremes of his beloved Sweden: the claustrophobic gloom of unending winter nights, the gentle merriment of glowing summer evenings and the bleak magnificence of the island where he spent his last years
Bergman's films include The Seventh Seal, Persona, Fanny and Alexander, Wild Strawberries, Smiles of a Summer Night, Cries and Whispers, Scenes from a Marriage, Through a Glass Darkly, and many others. He was also a prolific stage director.
He once said, "I want audiences to feel, to sense my films. This to me is much more important than their understanding them."
