He wrote or directed more than 170 theatrical productions and 60 films, including The Seventh Seal, Wild Strawberries, Persona and Fanny and Alexander, and he is widely-regarded as one of the greatest film-makers of the 20th century. Bergman’s trilogy of books – The Best Intentions, Sunday’s Children, and Private Confessions – is based on the life of his parents, and details his own upbringing in early 20th-century Sweden.
