Persona by Ingmar Bergman( Visual )

39 editions published between 1966 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By the midsixties, Ingmar Bergman had already conjured many of the cinema's most unforgettable images. But with the radical Persona, this supreme artist attained new levels of visual poetry. In the first of a series of legendary performances for Bergman, Liv Ullmann plays a stage actor who has inexplicably gone mute; an equally mesmerizing Bibi Andersson is the garrulous young nurse caring for her in a remote island cottage. While isolated together there, the women perform a mysterious spiritual and emotional transference that would prove to be one of cinema's most influential creations. Acted with astonishing nuance and shot in stark contrast and soft light by the great Sven Nykvist, Persona is a penetrating, dreamlike work of profound psychological depth

Viskningar Och Rop = Cries and Whispers by Ingmar Bergman( Visual )

17 editions published between 1972 and 2010 in Swedish and English and held by 852 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this film featuring the remarkable cinematography of Sven Nykvist, Bergman examines the relationship between three sisters. Agnes, a spinster lives with her housekeeper and is dying of cancer, while she is dying she is visited by her sisters, Karin and Maria. They quickly become entangled in old feelings of jealousy and selfishness. Agnes, tortured by cancer, is still able to transcend her sisters' pettiness to remember moments of staggering beauty in their past, but her sisters remain distant as Agnes' suffering reminds them of life's scars and their deep lack of connection. Only the maid Anna, who is deeply religious, is able to comfort Agnes in her extremity. After her death, Agnes returns to the living for a short moment, and in a dream-like sequence she asks her family for love. Cries and Whispers revisits Bergman's personal themes, the isolation of the individual, the quest for meaning in existence, and the conflict between the necessity of human relationships and their ultimate futility. Sven Nykvist's acute color cinematography captures the claustrophobia of the sisters home, using intense reds and whites
