Critic Reviews for Persona
[Bergman] gives us a movie within a movie, but he seems hardly to have made the enclosing movie, and then he throws away the inner one.
One of the screen's supreme works and perhaps Ingmar Bergman's finest film.
Bergman blends a theatrical subjectivity with a tactile visual intimacy, with his characters, the objects close at hand, and the superb coastal landscape.
Director Ingmar Bergman is modern cinema's most persistent observer of the human condition.
Audience Reviews for Persona
Ingmar Bergman, 1918-2007
A nurse takes care of an actress who has decided to stop talking, and after confessing her guilty secrets to the silent woman she finds her own persona starting to blur into the other woman's. A strange and mysterious psychoanalytical horror film; Ingmar Bergman paints the self as a very scary place you wouldn't want to visit.
An interesting look into mental health that twists and turns around the main question of 'who is who' and 'what makes me'. Brilliant performances from both stars.
