Persona (1966)

Persona (1966, SWE) 85m. *** D: Ingmar Bergman. Starring Bibi Andersson, Liv Ullmann, Margaretha Krook, Gunnar Björnstrand. Demanding psycho drama by one of cinema's most important auteurs. Actress Ullmann refuses to speak and is hospitalized. Film follows nurse Andersson's attempt to approach her, break her silence. Difficult to watch but masterfully directed and photographed (by Sven Nykvist). Excellent, bizarre score by Lars Johan Werle.
