READ--Ingmar Bergman - Cries and Whispers (1972) Cries and Whispers won for best Foreign film. It had many Academy Award nominations. The late Roger Ebert gave it 5 stars. This is a great film. It is a deep film and may be difficult for some to watch. It is a landmark in film making. It is available on dvd on the Criterion Collection label.
Swedish filmmaker, writer and producer, Ingmar Bergman. His gritty, realistic films don't embrace the "feel good" style of movies that Hollywood produces. He had the courage to take on darker topics, such as death, loneliness and the anguish of the human soul. I think he was a brilliant man and adore his films. Fanny and Alexander is my favorite.

Described by Woody Allen as "probably the greatest film artist, all things considered, since the invention of the motion picture camera," he is recognized as one of the most accomplished and influential film directors of all time.
