ˌiŋːmaɾ ˈbæɾːʝman ] (bornJuly 14, 1918inUppsala,Sweden; †July 30, 2007onFårö, Sweden) was a Swedishscreenwriter,filmandtheater director. Since he often worked on theater and film almost simultaneously in his development, both the stage and the film were reciprocally stimulating factors for the other medium. In 1997 Bergman wasnamed "Best Film Director of All Time"at theCannes Film Festival.[
A clear autobiographical influence can be seen in his work, especially the films. The majority of his films can be assigned to the genre of film drama , but he also shot comedies and documentaries . In his film dramas, he often addressed existential topics such as death, the search for God, human loneliness and interpersonal relationships. His film language was characterized, among other things, by long close-ups and special lighting that he developed together with his long-time cameraman Sven Nykvist . The sometimes direct portrayal of sexuality repeatedly led to problems with censorship in the 1950s and 1960s and, among other things, helped the film Das Schweigen to a scandalous success. Other well-known works are The Seventh Seal , Wild Strawberries , Persona , Scenes from a Marriage and Fanny and Alexander .
Ingmar Bergman was the middle of three children of the Lutheran pastor Erik Bergman and his wife Karin, geb. Åkerblom, born in Uppsala and raised in a strictly religious manner. His relationship with his parents was very conflictual. If he disobeyed, he was punished with a cane or locked up in the cloakroom. Years later, Bergman processed these experiences in films such as Die Hörige (1944), The Hour of the Wolf (1968) or Face to Face (1976). Bergman came into contact with the medium of film at a young age: his father used a magic lantern to illustrate his religion class . When he was ten years old, his brother was given a cinematograph . Bergman bought the machine in exchange for a hundred tin soldiers and used his pocket money to buy films for the machine. His grandmother also regularly took him to the movies. Bergman later developed an enthusiasm for the silent film directors of his homeland, especially for Victor Sjöström .
At the age of about 16 Bergman began to occupy himself intensively with dramatic literature ; especially the works of August Strindberg had a strong influence on him. Bergman rehearsed his first pieces in the basement of Storgatan No. 7 in Stockholm . In 1938 Bergman began studying literary history at Stockholm University, which he did not finish. In the same year he became a member of the ensemble of the amateur theater in Mäster Olofsgården, in 1940 he joined the Stockholm Student Theater ("Student Theater"), in which his future leading actors Birger Malmsten and Erland Josephson also took part. He wrote his own plays, the first of which was publicly performed in 1942, and began unpaid work as an assistant director at the Royal Opera . In 1941 he was in charge of the “Medborgarhuset” in Stockholm's community center as well as a children's theater, where he staged August Strindberg's ghost sonata. One of the actors was Gunnar Björnstrand , who would be one of his regular actors until the 1970s. In 1943 he staged several plays at the Stockholm “Dramatists' Study”, where he first worked with Anders Ek .
Early works and first successes: 1944–1955
In the early 1940s Bergman got a job as a screenwriter for the production company Svensk Filmindustri , which had become aware of him through his plays. Bergman's first screenplay to be filmed was Die Hörige (1944), directed by Alf Sjöberg . In the same year he took the position of theater director at the city theater in Helsingborg , making him the youngest of his guild nationwide. A year later, Bergman was given the opportunity to direct a film himself. The template for his debut film Kris did not come from him, but was based on a popular theatrical template . Kris started in 1946, but found neither audience nor critical acclaim.
In the following years Bergman shuttled between orders for Svensk Filmindustri and the independent producer Lorens Marmstedt . Among other things, It rains on our love (1946), Music in the Dark (1948) and Prison (1949) were created. The film historians Ulrich Gregor and Enno Patalas saw the common theme of these early works as young couples who defend themselves against the “hostile grasp of the environment” and whose love is “crushed between external resistance and the inability of the lovers themselves”. Bergman, who at that time had not yet found his own style, leaned formally on poetic realism , neorealism and even film noir in addition to the Swedish silent film he valued .
While Musik in the Dark was commercially successful, Prison failed and ended Bergman's collaboration with Marmstedt. Nevertheless, prison was important insofar as Bergman filmed his own original here for the first time and asked questions "about the position of man in the world, about the meaning of his existence, about God" (Rune Waldecrantz). During this time, Bergman was also employed as a director at the City Theater in Gothenburg , where, in addition to his own pieces, he staged classics such as Macbeth or, with great success, Albert Camus ' Caligula . During this time he learned to use the possibilities of a theater properly, to draw the audience's attention to essential things with full force, or with extreme thrift.
Beginning with the married drama Durst (1949), according to Gregor / Patalas, Bergman placed older couples at the center of his stories. In Durst , An die Freude (1950) and One Summer Long (1951), among other things, he dealt with his failed second marriage to Ellen Lundström. Bergman was one of his most important films for a summer because it was the first time he found his own style: "I suddenly knew that I was putting the camera in the right place, that I was getting the right results, that things were right." Regular cameraman Bergmans from the late 1940s to 1960 was Gunnar Fischer (1910–2011), who was famous for his portrait photography and his nuanced and high-contrast black and white pictures.
The crisis in Swedish film 1951–1952, accompanied by production stops and strikes, also interrupted Bergman's work. For financial reasons, he accepted the offer to shoot advertising films for the soap "Bris". In one of these, his later regular lead actress and temporary partner Bibi Andersson had her first film role. From 1952, Bergman worked parallel to his film work at the Malmö City Theater , where the collaboration with Max von Sydow and Gunnel Lindblom began. Guided by him, a "Bergman Ensemble" was built up, which was also extremely beneficial for the later films. In Malmö he staged plays by Strindberg, Ibsen , Molière and Goethe's Urfaust, among others .
For Bergman biographer Hauke Lange-Fuchs , One Summer marked the start of a series of so-called summer films that were set against the backdrop of the Swedish summer and sometimes took on an unusually cheerful tone for Bergman. These included Lange-Fuchs, along with One Summer Long , The Time with Monika (1953), Lesson in Love (1954) and The Smile of a Summer Night (1955). The films of this creative period, often starring Harriet Andersson , were largely received positively by the audience and made the director famous in his home country. The "light" tone of some of these films was Bergman's concession to the producers after his circus drama Evening of Jugglers (1953) failed at the box office and was in some cases sharply attacked by the critics. In other European countries, however, the evening of the juggler found early recognition, especially in France. In retrospect, the film was seen as an artistic milestone in Bergman's career.
International successes: 1956–1975
After the success of A Midsummer Night's Smile , which won an award at the Cannes International Film Festival in 1956 , Bergman was awarded funding for his next project, The Seventh Seal . For the first time since prison , Bergman openly addressed the question of the existence of God and the meaning of human existence. This film takes on a special role within the religiously colored themes, Bergman lets the existential struggle of people and the doubt of faith live through fully in the person of the knight. The smile of a summer night and the subsequent Wild Strawberries (1957) made the director internationally known, in 1958 Wild Strawberries was awarded the Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival . Ingrid Thulin made her Bergman debut in this film in a role that he had written especially for her. From the second half of the 1950s, Bergman also shot for Swedish television.
In 1960 Bergman received the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film for the medieval revenge drama The Virgin Spring , and in the same year Bergman began his work as a director (and later director) at the Royal Dramatic Theater in Stockholm . Bergman made some of his most important films with the three films of the "Faith Trilogy" As in a Mirror (1961), Licht im Winter (1962) and Das Schweigen (1963). In all three films, the main characters grapple with their inability to believe in God and relate to other people. From here on, it also seems that Bergman has "found his style". The silence caused a scandal because of its revealing erotic representations, was banned or heavily censored in some countries and, thanks to a large press coverage, one of Bergman's films with the greatest audience approval. The explicit question of the existence of God in Bergman's films ended with The Silence ; the loneliness of people, their search for understanding and the pursuit of happiness were in the foreground from then on.
All films in this creative period were photographed by Sven Nykvist (1922–2006), who remained Bergman's regular cameraman until 1983. A hallmark of Nykvist and Bergman's joint work was the creation of images with a strong emotional effect with as few artificial light sources as possible. Bergman limited himself (with the exception of Oh, these women , 1964) to the black and white format until the late 1960s.
With the experimental Persona (1966), the Norwegian Liv Ullmann appeared for the first time in one of his films, who took on the female lead in numerous Bergman works of the late 1960s and 1970s. From the mid to late 1960s she was Bergman's partner, and the connection resulted in their daughter Linn Ullmann (* 1966). Persona and the following films in the “Fårö Trilogy”, beginning with The Hour of the Wolf (1968), were just as unable to find an audience as the international co-production The Touch (1971), and critics were often divided. In contrast, Schreie und Whisper (1972) received recognition from critics and audiences . Bergman celebrated one of his greatest successes with the television series Scenes of a Marriage (1973), which was also used as a movie and subjected the institution of marriage to a critical analysis. With Die Zauberflöte (1975) he presented a highly acclaimed film adaptation of Mozart 's opera of the same name , which he had already quoted in Die Hour des Wolfs , among others .
Stay in Germany, return and final years: 1976–2007
In January 1976 Bergman was charged with tax evasion in Sweden. The charges were soon dropped, but Bergman temporarily moved to Munich to protest the treatment of his person . His next films, of which only Herbstsonate (1978) met with audiences and critics, were made in the Federal Republic of Germany and Norway. Bergman worked at the Munich Residenztheater until 1985 , but in September 1981 he was filming again in Sweden: Fanny and Alexander were supposed to be his "official" farewell to the cinema, after which he only wanted to concentrate on theater work and occasional television productions. The family saga, which was three hours long in the cinema and almost twice as long on television and once again combined many of Bergman's motifs, was almost universally praised by the reviewers, received four Academy Awards (including again for Best Foreign Language Film) and was a commercial success.
In 1985 Bergman returned to the Royal Dramatic Theater. In 1991 he staged the opera Bacchanterna based on Euripides ' drama Die Bakchen at the Royal Opera (music by Daniel Börtz). In 1996, after an enthusiastically acclaimed theatrical production of the Bakchen , Bergman finally said goodbye to the theater. The year before his long-time wife Ingrid von Rosen died, and his production of Molière's Misanthrope it was the conflict with the head of the Royal Dramatic Theater, Lars Löfgren come.
At the 50th International Film Festival in Cannes in 1997 , his daughter Linn received the “Palm of Palms” for him in the presence of 28 Palme d'Or winners. Bergman had already been honored for his life's work in Venice in 1983, and in 1988 he received the first European Film Prize "Felix".
Bergman directed his last television film in 2003 with Sarabande , a continuation of his series success Scenes from a Marriage , in which his longtime actors Liv Ullmann and Erland Josephson could be seen again. In Sweden around 990,000 viewers saw the broadcast.
Ingmar Bergman died on July 30, 2007 at the age of 89 in his house on the Baltic island of Fårö , where he had been his main residence since 1965. His burial also took place there in the island cemetery.
Bergman was married five times and had nine children:
- His first wife from 1943 to 1945 was Else Fisher. They had their daughter Lena (* 1943), who later had a small role in Wilde Erdbeeren .
- From 1945 to 1950 Bergman was married to Ellen Lundström. They had four children, Eva (* 1945), Jan (* 1946) and the twins Anna and Mats (* 1948).
- In the third marriage Bergman was married to Gun Grut from 1951 to 1952. They had their son Ingmar (* 1951).
- From 1959 to 1965 Bergman's wife was the concert pianist Käbi Laretei (1922–2014). With her he has the son Daniel (* 1962), who also works as a director; Bergman dedicated his short documentary film of the same name to him (1967).
- From 1965 to 1969 Bergman lived unmarried with Liv Ullmann (* 1938). They have the daughter Linn Ullmann (* 1966).
- From 1971 until her death in 1995 Bergman was married to his fifth wife, Countess Ingrid von Rosen. Their daughter Maria, however, was born in 1959.
Part of his artistic legacy is looked after by the Ingmar Bergman Foundation in Stockholm, established in 2002 . The Foundation's archive has been included in the UNESCO World Document Heritage list since 2007 . The Bergman Buildings Foundation on Fårö also manages Bergmans Immobilien, which among other things awards grants to international artists who can use the premises.
The 2011 Berlin International Film Festival retrospective was dedicated to Bergman.
Some actors owe their international breakthrough to Bergman, including Max von Sydow , Erland Josephson , Ingrid Thulin , Bibi Andersson and Liv Ullmann . Directors such as Woody Allen , Ang Lee , Lars von Trier and Margarethe von Trotta count him among their role models.
Bergman was also the main character of a radio musical by the group Sparks , The Seduction of Ingmar Bergman (2009), and a novel by Alexander Ahndoril , Directors (2006), from which Bergman distanced himself emphatically.
