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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.

a looser, less astringent feel to the story telling (indeed, this was
the first film where he experimented with letting his actors
improvise). The film feels more human, the edges softer. On the other
hands, the themes are classic middle period Bergman ' lies vs., truth,
hope vs. despair, etc. And on a plot level there are some interesting
echoes of 'Persona' in both its confused identities and Godard like
interruptions, but in a much subtler more smoothly integrated style.
I found the wonderful acting and fascinating film-making choices
overrode the problem of distance I feel with some of Bergman's early
and middle work. I always admire the films; the bravery, the acting,
the style, the deepness of their ideas, the complete lack of
compromise. But sometimes I just don't feel as drawn in on a visceral

The title 'The Passion of Anna' was an invention of the US distributor,
over Bergman's favored 'A Passion'. This is a case where a wrong title
can seriously effect one's perception of a film, since Anna is really a
supporting character.Read more ›

The movie itself is fascinating but the transfer is so-so. I don't know if it's a problem with my copy but the image is not
centered (I had to rotate the image).
I think that the majority of negative reviews about the Bergman set are a bunch of B.S. I've only found one reviewer-from Europe-who's actually opened the set and watched the... Read morePublished on Feb. 11 2004 by Matthew Bayer
