Directed by Ingmar Bergman.
Considered one of Ingmar Bergman’s greatest works, Persona follows the story of Alma, a nurse charged with the care of the mute actress, Elisabet Vogler. During their stay together, Alma becomes attached to Vogler and confides in her, until she finds a letter in which the actress regards her as an interesting and even humorous distraction. Tension between the two women grows, and Alma believes that her identity becomes merged with Vogler’s after a prophetic dream.
