Ingmar Bergman hated boring cheese
Don't give an old man boring cheese, is the crux of one of the notes Ingmar Bergman's housekeeper got during her time working for him. Amen, Ingmar.
The filmmaker, responsible for such epics as Fanny and Alexander, Wild Strawberries and The Seventh Seal, lived on the remote Baltic island of Fårö. Many of his possessions have been auctioned off since his death at the age of 89 and today 32 notes to his housekeeper - some tender and some with angry sketches - were auctioned in Stockholm for £4,110.
"Broken. Fix IMMEDIATELY or buy a new one!" read one of the notes, with a small devil sketched on it. The notes were sent to Anita Hagloef, his housekeeper from 1995 to 2003.
"This cheese was more boring. We'll go back to the old one", another read.
