Persona (1966)

Friday, September 14, 2018: -

By the mid-1960s, Ingmar Bergman had already conjured many of film's most unforgettable images. But with the radical Persona, this supreme artist attained new levels of visual poetry.

In the first of a series of legendary performances for Bergman, Liv Ullmann plays a stage actress who has inexplicably lost the ability to speak. An equally mesmerizing Bibi Andersson is the garrulous young nurse caring for her. Isolated in a remote island cottage, the women perform a mysterious spiritual and emotional transference that would prove to be one of cinema's most influential creations. Acted with astonishing nuance-and shot in stark contrast and soft light by the great Sven Nykvist-Persona is a penetrating, dreamlike work of profound psychological depth.
