Ingmar Bergman is an acknowledged giant of film and one of the great creative artists of this century. His career as a movie director, screenwriter, and producer spanned more than forty years, during which he made such masterpieces as The Seventh Seal, Wild Strawberries, Smiles of a Summer Night, Persona, Hour of the Wolf, Shame, Cries and Whispers, and Fanny and Alexander.
