Here are five key works from a six-decade career that has marked the history of cinema and influenced generations of directors to this day.Two women, 84 minutes of near constant close-ups and a morphing of their faces – Bergman ratcheted up psychological intensity in this mysterious drama set in an isolated cottage on the island of Faro.Exploring the relationship between an actress who has fallen mute and her nurse, Bergman's beautifully shot film interrogated the unstable foundations of identity.Bergman drew on his own troubled relationship with Liv Ullmann, who played the wife in the series.The three-hour cinema version was trimmed from an original five-hour TV series.After a nearly 20-year hiatus, Bergman returned for a last hurrah with this sequel to "Scenes from a Marriage".
