Summer Poster Smackdown!

This summery day matchup of Summer With Monika lightens up the Bergman film with the bright, beautiful works of Gilbert Allard versus the equally beautiful version by French fearsome foursome, J. Fourastie

Italian Bergmans

I know when most cinephiles think of Ingmar Bergman, they think of brilliant, but deep, dark, and depressing black and white films…and maybe some quips from Woody Allen. But leave it up to these Italian movie posters to see the bright and beautiful side in his work!

Up Close and Persona

I’ve actually never seen Persona, the 1966 Ingmar Bergman film starring Liv Ullmann and Bibi Andersson, but if it’s even half as cool as these posters than surely it can’t be that depressing.

The UK poster was designed by famed Academy Cinemas linocutter, Peter Strausfeld, and the Belgian version (middle) comes via the impressive MyPosterCollection, which also features a nice selection of Japanese posters.
