Inmar’s Top 10+1

Legendary helmmer Ingmar Bergman has drawn up a list of 11 of his favorite films, all of which are to be shown as part of the 18th annual fest in Goeteborg, Sweden, which begins Feb. 3.

The 76-year-old Swedish director, who has not made a film for theatrical release since his 1981 “Fanny and Alexander,” chose cinematic works which had particularly influenced his own filmmaking. That rare compliment belongs to the following oeuvres:

Margarethe von Trotta’s “Leaden Times” (“Die bleierne Zeit,” 1981, Germany)

Andrzej Waida’s “The Director” (1979, Poland)

Andrei Tarkovsky’s “Andrei Roublev” (1966, USSR)

Bo Widerberg’s “Raven’s End” (1963 Sweden)

Federico Fellini’s “La Strada” (1954, Italy)

Akira Kurosawa’s “Rashomon” (1950, Japan)

Billy Wilder’s “Sunset Boulevard” (1950, USA)

Marcel Carne’s “Port in the Fog” (1938, France)

Carl Th. Dreyer’s “The Passion of Holy Johanna” (1929, France)

Charlie Chaplin’s “The Circus” (1928, USA)

Viktor Sjostroem’s “The Phantom Carriage” (1921, Sweden)
