Ingmar Bergman

Ingmar Bergman passes away on July 30, 2007. He was a Swedish stage and film director. He is grouped with many greats and is considered one of the artistic masters of modern cinema.

Most of his films were set in the landscape of his native Sweden. The themes were often bleak, dealing with illness and insanity.

Bergman was active for more than 60 years, but his career was seriously threatened in 1976 when he suspended a number pending productions, closed his studios and went into self imposed exile for five years, following a botched criminal investigation for alleged income tax evasion.

He led a very interesting life. He claimed 9 children and was married 5 times.
