Starring: Bibi Andersson, Liv Ullmann
PERSONA is arguably Ingmar Bergman’s most challenging and rewarding film. An actress who has lost her voice (Ullmann) retreats to a remote summer house to recuperate with the young nurse assigned to care for her (Andersson). While isolated, the two women’s identities begin to mesh and soon it becomes difficult to know where one ends and the other begins. A fascinating character study, a masterful art film puzzle, and a clear inspiration on MULHOLLAND DRIVE.
“One of the screen’s supreme works and perhaps Ingmar Bergman’s finest film.” – Chicago Tribune
