out of the dvds in this collection i have only seen the passion of anna which i had seen previously several times, there is a scene in the film where andreas (max von synow) finds a small dog in a tiny noose which he saves towards the start of the film, in this dvd version, the scene is cut completely, we only hear a dog whimpering and then it cuts abruptly to the next scene, this scene is relatively important to the film as it sets up the fact that someone on the island is terrorising animals, the scene is even spoken of later on that is not in the film, this would probably utterly confuse first time viewers. this is a disgraceful censoring, hollywood should stay the hell away from fine art such as bergman, i would advise anyone to not buy this dvd collection as the other films may be censored also

By Tim Kidner TOP 500 REVIEWER on 14 Oct. 2012
Format: DVD
I'm rather shocked and appalled how no reviewer has either seen all the films, or if they have, see fit to only comment on the technical deffiencies of the DVDs as presented.

Firstly, the title, The Bergman 'Collection' is misleading, as for most film watchers they will know none of these, or even heard of them. The set represents a time when the Swedish director was almost in a kind of cinematic hinterland in the late '60's & 1970s, forced to flee from Sweden, due to an extremely large tax bill from the notoriously greedy Swedish tax authority, which, I presume he wasn't able/not wanting to pay. These four films were made under MGM, rather than his old one, now distributed by Tartan.

Three out of the four represent Begman's 'Faro' trilogy, a period of self induced semi isolation on the Island of that name and are generally quite dour but explore human emotion and relationships in powerful and often difficult scenarios. Shame, Hour of the Wolf and The Passion of Anna are all rewarding but really only those used to the dark and grainy sinew that runs through much of Bergman's often depressive (rather than depressing) own life.

I've written separate review for each of these films as I've just re-watched them, after several years. Many seasoned Bergman-ites (as I call them/us) cite them as being amongst his finest, though I personally disagree. His exploration of the issues involved may be among his best but as films, they do not - and possibly - cannot match those of what the Bergman name represents - The Seventh Seal, Wild Strawberries, Persona, Fanny & Alexander etc etc.

The final film, The Serpents Egg was his first (and as far as I know) only film in English, from 1977, though set in 1920's Berlin.

I LOVE Bergman. This collection is good for Bergman fans, who appreciate works that are not necessarily considered 'mainstream'. Excellent value for money and the product packaging is nice as well, nice box. Stunning films.

It was interesting and I don't regret buying it, but I found the mix of Nordic gloom and, as the blurb put it, 'psychological turmoil', somewhat depressing and it lacked the appeal of the films, e.g. Wild Strawberries, Smiles of a Summer's Night and above all The Seventh Seal, which I was brought up on.

Edited review:

The Passion of Anna and Shame rank with Bergman's best. Hour of the Wolf is good, although it feels a little overwrought. The Serpent's Egg is a rare misjudgement.

My original review concerned aspect ratios - I'm pleased to now confirm that this UK release has the correct aspect rations. Beware that the initial US DVD released by MGM was presented with all films in 1.66:1 aspect ratio, even though some of the originals were shot in 1.33:1!!! Nothing miraculous, they simply cropped the top and bottom of the screen. MGM accepted their error and reissued the discs in the correct aspect ratio.
