“One of the most honest and overflowing portraits of a film artist”

“Must-see for Bergmanophiles… Always forging ahead, teaming with ideas”
Hollywood Reporter

Jane Magnusson directs and narrates a documentary that exposes the darker, less well-known side to one of the most famous directors in world cinema. Focusing on 1957, a landmark year in which Bergman directed two films and four plays, Magnusson explores not only the director’s filmography but also his at times complex and turbulent personal life.

Using a wealth of previously unseen archive material, contemporary interviews and a fantastic selection of clips from Ingmar Bergman’s vast body of work, this fascinating and unflinching study is one of the standout film documentaries of the year.
