Jesse Kalin defines Bergman's conception of the human condition as a struggle to find meaning in life as it is played out. For Bergman, meaning is achieved independently of any moral absolute and is the result of a process of self-examination. Six existential themes are explored repeatedly in Bergman's films: judgment, abandonment, suffering, shame, a visionary picture, and above all, turning toward or away from others. Kalin gives us a sociological and psychological interpretation of Ingmar Bergman's films, but misses much about his family and up bringing. Bergman was the son of a Lutheran pastor and many of his films have some relationship with life, especially death.

But I have argued in the first part of this book that film, precisely because of its concrete depictions, can convey insights that inform even the abstract ideas of theoretical philosophy. Generally speaking, there are two ways in which it does so: through its ability to deliver realistic narratives and through the expressive nature of visual imagery.

Home Browse Books Book details, The Films of Ingmar Bergman. Ingmar Bergman began his film career as a scriptwriter for Svensk Filmindustri in March 1943 at age twenty-four. Cambridge Film Classics . The Films of Ingmar Bergman. A treatment for a coming-ofage story was referred by the studio's artistic director, Victor Sjöström, one of the founders of Swedish cinema and an internationally acclaimed director, to Alf Sjöberg, who developed it into Torment.

This concise overview of the career of one of the modern masters of world cinema defines Ingmar Bergman's conception of the human condition as a struggle to find meaning in life as it is played out. After examining six existential themes explored repeatedly in Bergman's films--judgment, abandonment, suffering, shame, a visionary picture, and a turning toward or away from others--Jesse Kalin shows how these themes are expressed in eight of his films, including well known favorites such as Wild Strawberries, The Seventh Seal, Smiles of a Summer Night, and Fanny and Alexander. Other important but lesser known films covered include Naked Night, Shame, Cries and Whispers, and Scenes from a Marriage.

Kalin gives us a sociological and psychological interpretation of Ingmar Bergman's films, but misses much about his family and up bringing. Bergman was the son of a Lutheran pastor and many of his films have some relationship with life, especially death. Kalin tries to take Igmar's film stories and stretch them in the hot Swedish sun to dry. There is a lot more to Berman's films. From the photography of Sven Nykvist to the strenuous, wretched screenplays of Bergman, there is more than meets the eye. Swedish history is portrayed in Virgin Spring and religion in Winter Light.

excellent

I have read several books and articles on Bergman, and this book is - without doubt - one of the most insighful and interesting. The author begins by laying out the "geography of the soul" according to Ingmar Bergman, and then analyzes several of his films in light of this paradigm. I felt the author very correctly identified Bergman's central themes in his films and did an excellent job of explicating how these themes are manifested in his works. I had a college professor say to me once, "A medoicre book points out the obvious, a great book points out things that are not obvious;" this is definitely a great book. After going back to my DVD collection and watching some of Bergman's films again after having read this book, I noticed several things I had not seen before, and this book greatly enriched my understanding and appreciation of his films.

This is by far the most acute and perceptive analysis on Mr. Bergman's films. Written with an uncanny clarity and vision, this volume also contains dozens of frame stills that illuminate the text. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Of all the Bergman studies available, this is the most lucid and detailed. A good read as well! Recommended for Bergman scholars as well as for those wanting to learn more about the great director. Fine cross-over text.

I must say this is the most pretentious book I have ever had the displeasure of reading. Bergam has been high jacked.
