“Persona is a complex, introverted, hallucinatory study of interpersonal relations, of fear, estrangement, art and communication. The story concerns a nurse, Alma, who is to take care of Elizabeth Vogler, a famous actress who has lapsed into complete silence after a performance of ‘Electra.' As the two women become intimately intertwined, Bergman eradicates the conventional distinctions between ‘reality' and ‘fantasy' and creates a psychological tapestry of unique mystery and power.” --Mike Shedlin
