Description

This translation brings to English readers for the first time some of the finest creations of Bergman's mature years. In these scenarios of extraordinary frankness, even rawness, Bergman shows his tender yet realistic views on the world of theatre, cinema and acting.

Award winning film director Ingmar Bergman's scripts are among the most important documents in film history. Though his vision in such films as 'Wild Strawberries' and 'The Seventh Seal' has shaped our thinking about the cinema, the vast majority of his most powerful recent work only slowly finds its way to American theatres. The 'Fifth Act' brings to English readers for the first time some of the finest creations of Bergman's mature years.

In these scenarios of extraordinary frankness, even rawness, Bergman shows his tender yet realistic views on the world of theatre, cinema, and acting, culminating with 'In the Presence of a Clown', where he returns to the character of his Uncle Cart, an irrepressible inventor who comes up with an early version of the talking film.

These most recent script, in effect Bergman's own fifth act, add an important and moving chapter to his life work. A preface contextualizing the scripts within Bergman's oeuvre has been added by Lasse Bergstrom, a Swedish film critic as well as the publisher of Bergman's work in Sweden.
