The Colors of Ingmar Bergman's "Passion"

There was something special about the first color films directed by the Europeans who came of age during the black and white era.

1971- The Touch (Дотик)

Giovanni Bellini again

Returning briefly to Venice,  I have to post a few of Bellini’s Virgins; it’s so obviously the same young girl modelling the BMV and the same child too, I think – ginger hair and normal proportions. 647 more words
