The Magician

Known in Sweden as The Face, Ingmar Bergman's 1958 film operates on the principle that illusion and reality, the darkly irrational and mysterious and the brightly rational and obvious, both possess an enormous power over the soul and mind of man. Set in the 19th century, it's one of Bergman's most tightly structured and frightening films. With Max von Sydow, Ingrid Thulin, Gunnar Bjornstrand, and Bibi Andersson. In Swedish with subtitles.
