Boasting landmark classics like Ingmar Bergman's The Seventh Sealand screen legends such as Greta Garbo, Sweden is home today to a rich and exciting contemporary national cinema that comprises the works of a diverse group of cinematographers, including Tomas Alfredson, Roy Andersson, and Nils Arden Oplev, director of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. In Directory of World Cinema: Sweden, Marcelline Block has assembled a team of leading international experts to situate Sweden's film industry in a global context. Among the topics discussed in this volume are the characteristic genres of Swedish cinema-among them silent films, erotica, animation, and crime noir-and the great impact Swedish films have had on filmmakers internationally, especially in America and France for whose audiences Swedish films have often been adapted. Additional essays examine the significance of Swedish directors and actors-among them Ingrid Bergman-who have made a lasting contribution to global cinema. Completing this volume are reviews of classic and contemporary Swedish films and recommendations for further reading.
