  • PERSONA is an intense and unsettling study of the symbiotic relationship between Alma, a nurse (Bibi Andersson), and Elisabeth (Liv Ullmann), an actress who has mysteriously lost the power of speech. To bring about her patient's recovery, Elisabeth's doctor asks Alma to accompany her to a private cottage by the sea. In this isolated setting, the two women fall into a strange state of codependency laced with jealousy and resentment--and eventually, their identities begin to merge. PERSONA is considered one of Ingmar Bergman's greatest cinematic accomplishments and should not to be missed by anyone seriously interested in film.

    USA Today

    "...PERSONA is film we return to over the years, for the beauty of is images and because we hope to understand its mysteries..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "...Every bit as intellectual as it sounds, PERSONA is made up of clinical compositions, austere acting and stark lighting....It's this very severity that gives the film it's crisp beauty..."
