Bergaman - A year in a life
During a six-year period, in the mid-twentieth century, something unsurpassed happens. A lanky Swede, about to turn forty, enters a period of film production without precedent. Between 1957 and 1963 he directs some of the greatest classics in the history of cinema, produces a number of theatre productions for the stage and radio and directs also six TV films. In terms of contemporary filmmakers Ingmar Bergman remains largely unequaled.
