World Cinema: Directors -- Bo Widerberg (177 words)
Already acclaimed as one of the leading novelists of his generation, Widerberg turned to film criticism in the early 1960s.
In 1962 he published a collection of essays, Vision in the Swedish Cinema, which vociferously denounced Swedish film as rarified and oblivious to everyday, contemporary issues; Ingmar Bergman was singled out as the primary offender.
Widerberg gained international acclaim with the lyrically photographed Elvira Madigan (1967), which tells the true story of a doomed love affair in morally oppressive 19th-century Sweden.
