Polish Film Posters for Ingmar Bergman Films

Polish_Bergman

Whatever’s in the water in Poland, I’d like to drink it. Because Polish movie poster artists have quite a knack for spinning film art into something completely unique. It’s as evident anywhere as it is with posters for the films of Ingmar Bergman, whose work was ripe for artistic interpretation and visual license. The beauty of these posters is that they’re intriguing even if you’re unfamiliar with Bergman or Polish art. And they’re a visual treat if you’re familiar with either. Here are ten Polish movie posters for Ingmar Bergman films.

Some still come bearing watermarks, which will tell you where you can purchase these if you’re interested.

    I’m so proud of my country right now. 🙂
    BTW, Mike Mills put 2 polish posters into his film ‘The Beginners’. He’s a big fan of Polish School of Poster.

    • I’m still trying to figure out what the mustache dude has to do with The Silence. I’m sure there WAS a mustache dude but I barely remember him.

    Really interesting…although Poland really dropped the ball on the Jos A. Bank clearance sale.

  5. Great post! I love seeing old movie posters…even better when they’re from one of my favorite directors! Good work 🙂

  6. Say what you will about the tenets of Marxism and Leninism, but it resulted in some of the greatest movie posters of all time.
