Criterion Collection: Ingmar Bergman Trilogy
Part of the Criterion Collection, A Film Trilogy by Ingmar Bergman is a three-disc set of 1960s chamber dramas from Ingmar Bergman. Shot by cinematographer Sven Nykvist, each film is a personal story of spiritual loss in modern life. Includes Through a Glass Darkly (1961), Winter Light (1962), and The Silence (1963). Each film is presented with a high definition full frame transfer in the original black-and-white. The Dolby Digital Mono soundtracks are offered in Swedish with improved English subtitle translation. Optional English dubbed soundtracks are also available. Special features include poster galleries, original theatrical trailers, essays, and video discussions with Bergman biographer Peter Cowie. Besides being a beautifully packaged collector's edition, this set marks the first time these films have been released on DVD in the U.S. Highly recommended for fans of the director's work.
