July is the month that we remember Ingmar Bergman, the greatest (along with Andrei Tarkovsky, Akira Kurosawa and Federico Fellini) as one of the greatest film Directors and writers of history of cinema.
Ingmar Bergman was born on July 14 of 1918 and passed away on July 30 2007 and that is why in this month we are remembering this unforgettable and remarkable Swedish Film Director in which his films are masterpieces of art cinema.
Ingmar Bergman has inspired many other filmmakers such as Woody Allen, Stanley Kubrick and Andrei Tarkovsky in which he said “I am only interested in the views of two people: one is called Bresson and one called Bergman.” and Bergman likewise had great respect for Tarkovsky, stating: “Tarkovsky for me is the greatest director”.
In a world in which we are filled of many “commerical blockbuster films from Hollywood”… thankfully, we have the Art Houses in which we can admire the real art cinema… the art of Ingmar Bergman.
