The Magic Flute Directed by Ingmar Bergman

Critics reviews

I once believed that this opera was nonsensical, but I was taking it too literally—it is almost a light romantic comedy, perhaps even a satire, about heroes and their failures. I learned this from Bergman’s film, and this insight is, to my mind, his greatest achievement here.

While the Mozart purist may take issue with Bergman’s conception of The Magic Flute, no one can deny the technical perfection with which the film has been mounted.

One need only have seen any one of Bergman’s films to realize that each flashback invariably begins or ends in the right place; in two right places, I should say, because. . . this sequence change always corresponds to the hero’s inner feeling, provoking in other words a renewal of action – which is an attribute of the truly great. What one mistook for facility was simply a greater rigour.
