Format: DVD
After much confusion, the long-awaited Bergman set has finally come out. You can disregard all the negative comments you may have read about faked aspect ratios, etc. Yes, MGM tried to pull a fast one on a couple of the titles in this box, but after being caught out, they did the right thing by pulling the box and waiting to issue an excellent set with transfers that easily match those of Criterion, Kino, etc. (Let's hear it for consumer power!) All the titles are now in their proper aspect ratio. The black and white transfers (Persona, Hour of the Wolf and Shame) are truly beautiful. These films have probably not looked this good since they first came out. The digital transfers for the two colour titles offer equally fine video and clear original audio. The disc of bonus materials is fascinating, with rare interviews with Bergman himself from 1970 and 2002. The bonus disc and the five individual titles also offer interviews with key Bergman players, including Erland Josephson, Bibi Anderson and the ever-insightful Liv Ullmann.
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.

It's disappointing, because I have wanted these discs for so long. I would rate this a 5 for the content, and a 1 for the flub. This rating could change depending on how MGM handles the exchange.
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 4you@mgm.com, subject line Ingmar Bergman, text of email should have name address and contact phone & MGM will contact you about exchanging the disc.

Reports have it that only two of the films will be corrected by April 20th. That's Hour and Shame.
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.

I am a true-blue, dyed-in-the-wool Bergmaniac. I frequently check in to Amazon to see whether new DVD releases have been made of Bergman's films. So it was with joy that I pre-ordered "The Ingmar Bergman Collection", which contains several of my favorites that I have been waiting months to acquire. Much to my suprise, I am informed HERE, informally, not by Amazon officially, that the DVDs have been improperly transferred with poor aspect ratios. Unfortunately, I heard too late. So, here I am with the box of DVDs unopened, and I'm furious that I must send them back! Despite frequent emails today to Amazon AND MGM, I have yet to hear a word on how this has happened, and I had to have outside confirmation from [...] that MGM has officially issued a recall. On February 7th. Too late for my order, obviously. Amazon: you need to have an 800 phone number, and your email responses need to be more specific, not just the canned "send it back to us if you have a problem" standard email. MGM: Shame, Shame, Shame, and particularly a BERGMANESQUE SHAME on you for so carelessly issuing these DVDs. I've learned a lesson here. I'll never let my anticipation run away with me again. Don't pre-order anything from Amazon! Don't order until you know others are pleased with the product. Why, if this product has been recalled, is this product still for sale on the website without a disclaimer? I'm so disappointed.
