Top Customer Reviews
As a fan of Ingmar Bergman's work and life, this book is the greatest resource imaginable, and I am strongly attracted to it--highest rating for the contents.
But the physical design/construction are the most miscalculated I've ever seen. The FIRST TIME I read the book (propped up on a tilt-top tray table), the front cover tore 9" down the inside. I assume that the same thing will happen to the rear cover when I near the end. I am a careful person, but by the time I finish reading this book, it's going to be in a shambles. Adequate cloth binding on the inside of the covers was obviously needed.
Didn't the designer do any user-testing?
Perhaps this title should have been in two or three volumes. In one volume, it is too heavy and awkward to be read comfortably. If flat on a table, it needs to be read at an angle--inconvenient. At about 14 pounds, it's way too heavy to rest on one's lap. I say: either normal format and heavy weight OR oversize format and light weight but NOT oversize format and heavyweight.
What an egregious mix of pros and cons in this book!
The accompanying DVD includes fascinating behind the scenes looks at films ranging from The Seventh Seal and Sawdust and Tinsel in the 1950s to his recent, final film Saraband. Also included is a film strip from Fanny and Alexander that was played in Bergman's theatre on Faro. (Mine contains 12 frames!)
