Farvä´l Ingmar Bergman (1918-2007)

The MasterBergman was a visionary of the highest order. His emotionally charged films probed into the darkest and most unexplored recesses of the human soul. A place where we find no quarter from the internecine feuds and solitude that we create all around us. Det Sjunde inseglet (The Seventh Seal), Scener ur ett äktenskap (Scenes From A Marriage), and Nattvardsgästerna (The Communicants) are as devastatingly poignant today as the moment when Bergman's camera encapsulated the human drama. His passing is a heartbreaking loss to the art world.

Ingmar Bergman est mort.
Vive Ingmar Bergman!
