«Persona» is one of those films you can watch time and again. Directed by the fiercely innovative, provocative, and enormously influential Swedish director Ingmar Bergman, «Persona» is a modernist masterpiece considered by many to be Bergman’s greatest work. The story of a troubled actress (Bergman’s great muse Liv Ullmann) who is cared for by a nurse (Bibi Andersson) at a beautiful seaside cottage, «Persona» employs gorgeously stark camera work and techniques.
