Movie Trailers: PERSONA
In continuing this month's theme of presenting some trailers from the great Swedish auteur Ingmar Bergman, I'd like to post the trailer for his brilliant Persona (1966). The film is a cinematic classic and powerful character study of two women. A nurse (Bibi Andersson) takes care of an actress (Liv Ullmann) who has chosen not to speak. As the film goes on the nurse begins having the personality of the actress merge along with her own. The film also begins with a series of images that flash at the screen and are quite startling. Shot in beautiful black and white, it is psychological, mysterious and has magnificent performances from these two legendary actresses, both mainstays with Bergman. Check out the trailer.
