Ingmar Bergman directed over sixty films and documentaries for cinematic release and for television, most of which he also wrote. He also directed over one hundred and seventy plays. Among his company of actors were Harriet Andersson, Liv Ullmann, Gunnar Bjrnstrand, Bibi Andersson, Erland Josephson, Ingrid Thulin and Max von Sydow . Most of his films were set in the landscape of Sweden. His major subjects were death, illness, faith, betrayal and insanity .

The Seventh Seal :

Set during the Black Death , it tells of the journey of a medieval knight (Max von Sydow) and a game of chess he plays with the personification of Death (Bengt Ekerot), who has come to take his life. The film is considered a major classic of world cinema. It helped Bergman to establish himself as a world-renowned director and contains scenes which have become iconic through parodies and homages.

Fanny and Alexander :

The story is set during 1907-09 (with an epilogue in 1910), in the Swedish town of Uppsala. It deals with a young boy, Alexander (Bertil Guve) , his sister Fanny (Pernilla Allwin) , and their well-to-do family, the Ekdahls . The siblings` parents are both involved in theatre and are happily married until the father`s sudden death through a stroke. Shortly thereafter, their mother, Emilie (Ewa Frling) , finds a new suitor in the local bishop, a handsome widower, and accepts his proposal of marriage, moving into his ascetic home and putting the children under his stern and unforgiving rule. He is particularly hard on Alexander, trying to break his will by every means, something Emilie had not expected. The children and their mother soon live as virtual prisoners in the bishop`s house until finally the Ekdahl family intervenes, urged by Emilie who has secretly been in touch with her former mother-in-law Helena and told her of their dire situation.

With help from an old friend, a Jewish antiques dealer, as well as some magic, the children are smuggled out of the house, but the Ekdahls` attempts to bribe or threaten the bishop into divorce fail. Emilie, by now pregnant, slips her husband a sedative and flees as he sleeps, after which a fire breaks out and the bishop is burnt to death. In the meantime, Alexander has met the Jewish merchant`s mysterious nephew, Ismael Retzinsky , and fantasized about his stepfather`s death it is as if Alexander`s fantasy comes true as he dreams it. The story ends on a mainly happy, life-affirming note, with the christening
