Film Director Ingmar Bergman Is Buried

STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) -- A few dozen friends and relatives attended a low-key funeral today for Swedish filmmaker Ingmar Bergman.

In keeping with his wishes, the small ceremony was held on the secluded Swedish island where Bergman spent his final years.

The famed filmmaker reportedly left written instructions calling for no eulogies or profusion of flowers. An organ and cello played Bach. There were no speeches.

A single photographer was allowed to take pictures; other media and the public were barred.

Bergman was 89 when he died last month at his Faro island home. His children were among the small circle at today's funeral, along with actors Liv Ullmann and Bibi Andersson.
