Persona (1966)

Hoezo in KINO

To celebrate the release of Mia Hansen-Løve’s Bergman Island, we bring one of our favourite Bergmans back to the cinema. The extraordinary beautiful Persona also centers on two characters on the mysterious Fårö– which doesn’t seem to have changed much in 60 years. Persona gets richer with each viewing experience, and is a perfect companion piece before or after your visit to Bergman Island.

Storyline

A young nurse, Alma, is put in charge of Elisabeth Vogler: an actress who is seemingly healthy in all respects, but will not talk. As they spend time together, Alma speaks to Elisabeth constantly, never receiving any answer. Alma eventually confesses her secrets to a seemingly sympathetic Elisabeth and finds that her own personality is being submerged into Elisabeth’s persona.
