With its frequently close ties between stage and film worlds, the films of Sweden have been notable for powerful directorial sensibilities and forceful acting since the earliest days of cinema, specifically in the work of actor/director Victor Sjöström (alias Victor Seastrom). From the early-1950s onward, Ingmar Bergman helped shape the audience for international cinema worldwide, while encouraging subsequent major talents from Jan Troell to Lukas Moodysson.
