As for the films, they speak for themselves. If you still haven't seen the four sixties films in this box (the summit of Bergman's art in the opinion of many critics), here's a chance to get acquainted with some truly great late-20th century art. Forget about the bad press. MGM got it right this time.

For those who have received the set and are wondering about the exchange, the following is from hometheaterforum.com:
Statement from MGM Home Entertainment regarding the recall of the INGMAR BERGMAN COLLECTION...
"It has come to our attention that the transfers utilized for the release of Ingmar Bergman's "Hour of the Wolf" Special Edition DVD and "Shame" Special Edition DVD are not representative of the intended theatrical presentation.
"In order to provide customers with the best quality product available, we are recalling the product at retail and will be releasing both films in a 1:37:1 aspect ratio on April 20, 2004.
"The Ingmar Bergman DVD Collection will also be available on that date. MGM Home Entertainment always strives to provide the highest standard of product and customer care. For additional information or comments, please contact our customer service at 877/646-4968."
Calling the number gives a recorded message that an email should be sent to email@example.com, subject line Ingmar Bergman, text of email should have name address and contact phone & MGM will contact you about exchanging the disc.
Reports also have it that MGM has also recalled these two films and the box set.
It's Amazon that continues to sell those two films and the box set.
MGM's in the clear. They're correcting a mistake.
But unless someone makes Hour of the Wolf and Shame and the box set pre-order items, then Amazon's the bad guy here.

This set only gets 2.5 stars on Amazon because when MGM first brought out the set, two
of the films were in the wrong aspect ratio. Read more
