Ingmar Bergman, Sven Nykvist, Allan Edwall, and Ewa Fröling in Fanny und Alexander (1982)

The Swedish film industry ground to a halt in 1951 due to a ten-month strike by studio personnel, intended as a protest against an "amusement tax" levied against motion picture producers. During this period he directed several TV commercials for a soap called Bris (i.e. Breeze). He later said he was "absurdly grateful" to get this job.

He was approached by Italian television in the seventies, about making a TV-movie based on the life of Jesus Christ. He wrote a synopsis and planned on filming the entire movie in the Swedish province Gotland (for example, the rocky beaches of Langhammars on the island of Fårö were to serve as Golgatha). Eventually, Franco Zeffirelli was commissioned to helm the project, which became Jesus of Nazareth (1977).
