BIOGRAPHY OF INGMAR BERGMAN

Director, screenwriter. Ingmar’s childhood is marked by the rigid father figure, a Lutheran pastor. The mother is of Dutch origin. He graduated from Stockholm University where, at the same time, he directed an amateur dramatics group. In 1939 he was offered the job of assistant director at the Royal Opera House in Stockholm. In 1943 he married Else Fisher, but their marriage lasted only two years. He wrote the screenplay for Alf Sjöberg’s film “Spasimo” (1944), and made his directorial debut the following year with “Crisi”. The same year, after obtaining a divorce from his first wife, he marries Ellen Lundström. After “It rains on our love” (1946). it is with “The Prison” (1948) that the recurring themes of Bergman’s films are outlined: God, the Devil, spiritual torment. The first great success was obtained in 1950 (the year of the divorce from his second wife) with “A summer of love”, a film about the re-enactment of adolescence, which was presented in Venice. In 1951 he married Gun Grut. After “Women in Waiting” and “Monica and Desire” both from 1952, the director’s most convincing proof is “A Flare of Love” (1953). In those years, however, the film that obtained the most acclaim was “The seventh seal” (1957) set in a suggestive Middle Ages, in which the protagonist (Max von Sydow) plays a game of chess with Death. With “Il posto delle fragole” (1958) Bergman obtained the first of five Oscar nominations for best screenplay, while the following year he obtained the award for best director for “On the threshold of life” in Cannes. With “The fountain of the virgin” (1959) we return to the Middle Ages; “The Devil’s Eye” (1960) is a prelude to the trilogy of “Come in a Mirror” (second Oscar nomination for the screenplay), “Winter Lights” (both from 1962) and “Silence” ( 1963). In 1962 his son Daniel was born from the director’s fourth marriage to actress Käbi Laterei, which took place in 1959. Later he has an affair with Liv Ullmann, actress in “Persona” (1966). From the relationship was born his daughter Linn, now a writer. In 1969 he made “Passione”; the same year she divorces for the fourth time. In 1971 he married the actress Ingrid Von Rosen, with whom he remained united until her death in 1995. In 1972 he shot “The Magic Flute”, and in 1973 with “Sussurri e grida”, he obtained an Oscar nomination for the best screenplay and wins an award at Cannes. This is how he reconfirms himself in international cinema, before the sensational arrest two years later on charges of tax evasion, for which he is forced to leave Sweden. In 1977 with “The egg of the snake”, produced by Dino De Laurentiis, he argues the roots of fascism. He directs compatriot actress Ingrid Bergman in “Autumn Symphony” in 1978, for which he gets yet another Oscar nomination for screenplay. His last film for the big screen is from 1982 and is titled “Fanny and Alexander” with which he wins several David di Donatello (best foreign director, best foreign screenplay), the FIPRESCI award at the Venice Film Festival and gets two Oscar nomination, for direction and screenplay. After forty years his career took place between theater and cinema, he chose not to deal with cinema anymore but only with theater and television. Precisely for Swedish TV in 1973 he wrote and directed “Scenes from a marriage”, a miniseries in 6 episodes whose version for cinema obtains success and international diffusion and of which, in 2003, he directs a sequel, “Sarabanda”, shot in HD which is his latest film. Away from the screen, in 1987 he published “The magic lantern”, his autobiography, he wrote the screenplays for “With the best intentions”, a film that Bille August directed in 1992 and in 2000 the one for “The Infidel” which was directed by the ex comrade Liv Ullmann. Discovered the charm of the island of Farö in 1960 looking for a set for the filming of “Like in a mirror”, he had a house built there in 1965, all taken by the great
