I liked "Scenes from a Marriage" by Ingmar Bergman. Has he made any similar films?

Bergman goes a lot of different directions over his career. You should try 'Fanny and Alexander' to match the scope and the familial depths of Scenes. If you want to really dig in, he's perhaps at his best (well, leaving aside the amazing 'Wild Strawberries') in his trilogy on faith: 'Through a Glass Darkly', 'Winter Light', and 'The Silence'. The second, especially, anticipates some of the brutal intimacy of the relationship in 'Scenes'. Boiled down to only two hours, it is extremely potent and just about his best work.

I second the Trilogy viewing. These are, amongst other things, visually unbelievable. I would recommend highly The Seventh Seal, Wild Strawberries, and Persona- as well to get some more scope. I kind of feel like if you like Bergman, you'll like most of his stuff. JJ, agree with you completely about Winter Light.
