    MOSCOW, July 30 (RIA Novosti) - Remarkable Swedish film director Ingmar Bergman, who died Monday aged 89, was one of the last masters of philosophical films, said Kirill Razlogov, director of the Institute of Cultural Studies and famous film critic.

    According to the Swedish news agency TT, Bergman died at his home on Faro, Sweden, early Monday morning.

    "Bergman came to the cinema from theater bringing his actors, traditions and concept and conquered the whole world," Razlogov said.

    Among Bergman's most popular films are Wild Strawberries (1957), The Magician/The Face (1958), Smiles of a Summer Night (1955), The Seventh Seal (1957), The Silence (1963), Persona (1959), Scenes from a Marriage (1973), Autumn Sonata (1978) and Fanny and Alexander (1982), which won four Academy Awards, including Best Foreign Film Oscar in 1983.

    Bergman's last work was the Saraband TV project (2003).

    The great artist usually wrote his own film scripts, which addressed a wide range of philosophical and moral issues.
