Take Three part 2 “Trilogy”

At the beginning of the 1960’s Ingmar Bergman unleashed “Through a Glass Darkly”, “Winter Light”, and “The Silence” in rapid succession, exposing moviegoers worldwide to a new level of intellectual and emotional intensity. Each film employs minimal dialogue, eerily isolated settings, and searing performances from such Bergman regulars as Max von Sydow, Harriet Andersson, Gunnar Bjornstrand, Ingrid Thulin, and Gunnel Lindblom in their evocation of a desperate world confronted with God’s desertion. Drawing on Bergman’s own religious upbringing the films in the Trilogy are deeply personal, challenging, and enriching works that exhibit the filmmaker’s peerless formal mastery and fierce intelligence.


Here is a fabulous introduction into these masterpieces.
