Ingmar Bergman was, and still remains, along with Fellini and Kurosawa, among the greatest creators of the language of cinema.

“Bergman was the first to bring metaphysics — religion, death, existentialism — to the screen,” Bertrand Tavernier, the French film director, once said. “But the best of Bergman is the way he speaks of women, of the relationship between men and women. He’s like a miner digging in search of purity.”
