Persona (1966)

Directed by Ingmar Bergman



A young nurse, Alma, is put in charge of Elisabeth Vogler: an actress who is seemingly healthy in all respects, but will not talk. As they spend time together, Alma speaks to Elisabeth constantly, never receiving any answer. Alma eventually confesses her secrets to a seemingly sympathetic Elisabeth and finds that her own personality is being submerged into Elisabeth’s persona.

Length 85 minutes


Jörgen Lindström | Gunnar Björnstrand | Liv Ullmann | Margaretha Krook | Bibi Andersson

Viewing Notes

Filling more Ingmar Bergman and this might be my favorite to date. Crazy considering his style change but duality of the characters and the story are executed so well I just really love it. Def one to revisit someday.
