'''Ingmar Bergman''' (1918 2007) was a [[UsefulNotes/{{Sweden}} Swedish]] director, regarded as one of the true greats in the history of film. Between writing, directing, and producing, he was nominated for thirteen UsefulNotes/{{Academy Award}}s, winning for Best Foreign Film three times: ''The Virgin Spring'' (1960, the inspiration for the American ''Film/TheLastHouseOnTheLeft''), ''Through a Glass Darkly'' (1961), and ''Fanny and Alexander'' (1983). Another of his famous films is ''The Seventh Seal'', a TropeCodifier for ChessWithDeath.

His films have a reputation for being gloomy and surrealistic. Although he generally tells identifiable "stories," [[LeFilmArtistique straightforward plot descriptions will rarely give any real indication of what his movies are "about"]]: even criticism of his works tends to sound like psychobabble. Bergman himself even stated that he didn't so much care if the audience understood what he was going for, [[EmotionalTorque as long as they felt something]]. Despite being (rather unjustly) a poster child for TrueArtIsIncomprehensible, the list of filmmakers who regard him as being among the best directors ever is long, including Creator/WoodyAllen, Creator/StanleyKubrick, Creator/MartinScorsese, Creator/StevenSpielberg, Creator/AngLee and Creator/FrancisFordCoppola. There's a reason so many of his films have been released in America by Creator/TheCriterionCollection. However, it should be noted that in his lifetime Bergman's films were generally box-office successes, not only in Sweden and Europe, but also in America. His film ''Scenes from a Marriage'' was the most popular TV show of its age and according to legend was a cause for a spike in divorce rates after the film's release. ''Cries and Whispers'' was likewise released in America by none other than Creator/RogerCorman who managed to distribute it so well that it became a box-office there. He was pretty much a household name in TheSixties and TheSeventies across the world.
