    Bergman's Great Trilogy

    Dare I say they don't make 'em like this anymore? Once upon a time, people once went to the movies expecting to have their lives changed by what they saw on the screen, and Bergman rarely let them down. Winter Light, in particular, is a film that has stayed with me for many years; even if you're a secular soul, its portrait of spiritual yearning, pain, and isolation is hard to shake.

    A masterpiece - The UK Version I found is 91 minutes

    I consider this film to be one of the few masterworks of cinema.

    This is in response to "anonymous" :

    The version of "The Silence" sold at amazon.co.uk from "Palisades Tartan" released in 2001 (PAL) lists the running time at 91 minutes, four minutes shorter than the Criterion Collection version. "Anonymous" would do well to point to where one can find the "Directors Cut" version that he/she says is longer than 95 minutes. I cannot find it. (I would like to, if it exists).

    Criterion is releasing a CUT version of THE SILENCE

    Despite having built their reputation on ''director approved'' versions of classic films, it seems as if Criterion's new transfer of ''The Silence'' (the final film in this trilogy) will be of the old, cut version of the film (in their running times they list their release as being 95 minutes long; that's the short version). The director's cut, availible on DVD in the UK and elsewhere, has little-known but important differences from this shorter version. If you really care about having the version of this film Ingmar Bergman wanted audiences to see, import the UK version and get yourself a code-free DVD player and a video monitor that can show the PAL format. In the meantime, ask Criterion why on earth they would release this classic film in a version cut down for 1963 US sexual mores.
