Trollflöjten

Ingmar Bergman saw The Magic Flute opera for the first time when he was 12 and it changed his life forever. It occupied his imagination for the next 44 years, until he brought his early fascination to the screen for the Swedish television. Bergman’s The Magic Flute is a fairy tale about the power of love. The Queen of the Night offers Tamino her own daughter if he promises to rescue her from her father Sarastro. He is given a magic flute and magic bells for his companion Papageno. Together they go on a journey to find love and knowledge.

 

Sommaren med Monika

The black-and-white world of the Stockholm proletariat. Dirty streets, cramped housing, second-rate pubs. Hard work and a growing sense of despondency. A couple of young lovers named Harry and Monika decide to escape from all this. Using a stolen motorboat, they set off for a holiday during which they travel carefree from shore to shore, swimming, sunbathing, and enjoying their bodies. They also envision, naturally, a happy life together. When their dreams eventually meet reality, however, it is like a speeding car crashing into a concrete wall. This early work by cinematic master Ingmar Bergman was first acclaimed for its moral courage. In time, however, it also started to be appreciated for its artistic qualities. No one praised it more than Jean-Luc Godard, who, in a 1958 review, wrote that it was to contemporary cinema what The Birth of a Nation was to classic cinema.

 

Persona

A whirring projector displays on-screen a variety of images and scenes that are connected in ways we can only guess at. After this ostentatiously avant-garde prelude revealing the machinery of the cinematic fiction to follow, the film itself begins. A young nurse named Alma looks after a famous actress, Elizabeth Vogler, who is in a state of existential crisis. Fleeing from the world, the patient falls into passivity and silence. The two women move from the hospital to a house by the sea, where their relationship becomes increasingly toxic. A dialectic of love and frigidity. A fusion of personas. Metaphorical and literal vampirism. As time passes, this intimate drama transforms into a psychological horror. At the same time predatory and poetic, Ingmar Bergman considered Persona to be one of his most accomplished films.
