Ingmar Bergman passed away on July 30 2007. He was one of cinema's greatest. Few autobiographies has got as much prior interest as Ingmar Bergman's memoir when it was released in 1987.
With sharp cuts and daring associations - a literary technique taken from the art of film - Ingmar Bergman tells the story of his way from unhappy child of a priest to much loved film and theater magician. A journey through a successful artistic life, marred by many problems and conflicts.
In his autobiography The Magic Lantern Ingmar Bergman showed once and for all that he was not only an exceptional film and theater director, but also a great writer.
