In 1964, Ingmar Bergman wrote a script for a film titled The Cannibals. It was to star Bibi Andersson, and included a small part for the up-and-coming Norwegian actress Liv Ullmann, but it was ultimately tabled when Bergman became very ill and it was unclear when the production could start. Some months later, after seeing a photo of Andersson and Ullmann together (they’d become fast friends), he came up with the idea for Persona, a story about two women who lose their identities in one another.
sooooo i went to europe for the first time in november and suddenly movies seemed super trite and i started painting every day and working on this massive script and you know what? I DON”T OWE YOU ANY EXPLANATIONS.
i feel like this is an appropriate first review to return with. you know, because i was in europe and then you didn’t hear from me for a long time.
