My word: the mother of all films! Did I witness the birth of modern cinema in this film or did modern cinema find its home in a Bergman movie?

Widely recognised as Bergman's most extraordinary and influential film, Persona is a rich and poetic study of womanhood and identity, featuring two of the Swedish master's greatest leading ladies, Liv Ullmann and Bibi Andersson.

Elizabeth (Liv Ullmann) is a famous actress who is suddenly taken ill and left without speech. While convalescing on the coast, she is cared for by Nurse Alma (Bibi Andersson) and, silenced by the effect of her - possibly psychosomatic - illness, finds that her nurse does the talking for both of them. Gradually, the two women's identities begin to merge and their personalities become one.

Almost impossible to describe in words, this landmark film is a visual tour-de-force which remains as innovative and startling today as it was in 1966. This version is fully uncut and features newly created, uncensored subtitles.

Forget FilmFour's advice on films to see before you die. Just catch this one and save yourself time.
