(jp) wrote: Review In A Nutshell:I personally believe first impressions in art-house cinema shouldn't completely define one's opinion of the film; it is during the second viewing, and how that experience fares with the first, whether better or worse, to define whether one likes or dislikes the film. Persona was a film that initially caused feelings of disappointment, leaving me in a state of confusion and frustration due to the film's, at the time, ambiguous and complex themes. I finally decided to give this film another attempt, unexpectedly surprising me in the process; a film that tackles complicated but well-executed themes, rewarding those who give the film the concentration it deserves.The closer we are to somebody, the more we are able to understand them, eventually being able to speak for them as one could easily anticipate how the other would feel about it. I have had many friends that I have gained a close relationship with, and as time passes together, we unconsciously become much more aware of one another, revealing shades of ourselves without even noticing; becoming more and more of a single unit. Persona deals with the same idea, but it brings the unconscious elements right to the surface, and I think because of that I felt distant from the film, as at the time I was not yet very aware of it and therefore could not empathise with the filmmaker's intentions. In Persona we have two women, one a nurse (Alma) and the other a suddenly turned mute actress (Elisabet Vogler), accommodating an isolated home. This sense of isolation in itself creates a tight, almost claustrophobic atmosphere, pushing its characters close together, to the point where it feels like they are dependent on one another to avoid feelings of loneliness and boredom.This close proximity has naturally changed Alma's initial intentions, which was to provide care for Elisabet, and grow into the territory of friendship. Alma then begins to share about her life, and Elisabet there willing to listen. Elisabet's true agenda is revealed later in the film, accompanied with deep and subtle exposition that speaks volume of the character and the film's profound themes. The film shows a close representation of an actress' ability to find and insert herself into a role, showing how far it could go, potentially consuming one's personal life. Elisabet is a person who is in dire need of an escape from her domestic situation. Bergman brings a surreal quality to the way Elisabet transfer herself into Alma, relying on conscious cinematic techniques.There are still some aspects of the film that I have yet been able to penetrate, but this is a film that requires deep attention and repeated viewings in order to shed its layers. Persona is an almost perfect film that displays Bergman at his most intimately ambitious, telling a tight and quiet story, paired with haunting and thought-provoking imagery.
