Searching for Ingmar Bergman Reviews:

This documentary is a difficult pass. There are a several interview tidbits that are interesting (if nothing really new), but each scene, each transport is counteracted by von Trotta's deep need for attention and recognition. I don't have a trouble with filmmakers inserting themselves into their own documentary, but this is just ridiculous: She is front and center. And about half of the runtime is about her, not Bergman. How she was inspired to become a filmmaker because of Bergman, how she felt honored, because he liked a film of hers forty years ago. It becomes unbearable very quickly. If you wish to watch a informative documentary about Bergman, avoid this production like the plague. There's some interesting notification burried there, somewhere beneath the layers of self-promotion and self-congratulatory chest pounding, but it's simply not worth the effort. A better game would be "The unbelievable filmmaker Margarethe von Trotta looks back on her best achievements (and there's Bergman)". I hated it.


Greetings again from the darkness. Despite his being one of the most productive and influential filmmakers of all-time, it's understandable if you are concerned that a biopic of Ingmar Bergman might be a bit dry or hard to connect with ... you know, type of like his movies. The satisfied truth is that Margarethe von Trotta, Felix Moeller, and Bettina Bohler have collaborated on this very interesting dig inside the mind and process of this remarkable Swedish artist.Mr. Bergman's greatest known movies include: THE SEVENTH SEAL (1957), WILD STRAWBERRIES (1957), PERSONA (1966), CRIES AND WHISPERS (1972), SCENES FROM A MARRIAGE (1973), FANNY AND ALEXANDER (1982). It's likely you have either seen all of these or none, but either way, as long as you have some interest in the history of cinema, you'll be hooked on the multiple interviews and clips provided here.Among those interviewed are actress Liv Ullman (she turns 80 this year), who appeared in 10 (she tells 11) Bergman films. She cheerfully recalls the first time she met the director and how it led to their first collaboration, PERSONA. We also hear insight and private stories from director and fellow Swede Ruben Ostlund (director of the terrific FORCE MAJEURE), Swedish documentarian Stig Bjorkman, and two of Bergman's sons, Daniel and Ingmar Jr. On the private side, we learn the legendary filmmaker was son to the Parson of a local church, married 5 various girls and fathered 9 kids via 6 girls (his 5 wives plus Liv Ullmann), and that he wasn't close to any of his children. He was described as viewing childhood through his own, rather than that of his kids. On his 60th birthday, there was an unusual gathering of all 9 children, many who had never previously met.Maybe some of this is explained by Bergman's own definition of art as "therapy for the artist". This makes sense as so many discuss his insecurities and his own concerns with never being nice enough. This despite a career of 50 plus movies (many of which are studied in movie classes) and nearly three times that many scene productions. Being wrongfully accused of tax evasion in 1976 affected his health and career, as well as his love of homeland Sweden. He moved to Germany before living out most of his life on the island of Faro - where he also filmed many movies.The interviews presented here by Ms. Von Trotta (herself an accomplished filmmaker and actress) are every informative, though extra interviews from Maximum von Sydow, Bibi Andersson (each appeared in 13 Bergman movies), and Woody Allen (the American filmmaker most closely associated with Bergman) would not just have added flavor, but were also type of expected. The end effect is that we view Bergman as the ultimate brooder, and one who had much respect and admiration for actors. Though he passed away in 2007 (the same day as director Antonioni), we are actually even more convinced that Ingmar Bergman was a master of both the written word and on screen imagery.


"Ingmar Bergman - Vermächtnis eines Jahrhundertgenies" or "Searching for Ingmar Bergman" is a fresh German/French collaboration released in 2018. The director and writer is renowned filmmaker Margarethe von Trotta and she collaborated with her son Felix Moeller in both fields. The subject, i.e. the center of the film, is in the title. These 95 mins are about late Swedish filmmaker Ingmar Bergman, who is considered by many one of the greatest directors of all time, maybe the greatest that ever came from Europe. So even if I am not too familiar with his works, i gotta tell thatg the boy deserves a high-quality documentary about him. This is not what we have here. Some of the interviews are nice and that is also the main reason why I give this movie 3 stars out of 5 and a positive recommendation. It was a truly close call due to von trotta's self-centered approach and that is really a trouble that exists in many of her works I gotta say. She has a tendency to place herself method too much in the middle of the film instead of beinf restrained and allowing all the focus and fixation to be projected to the contents, here the topics of Ingmar Bergman. I will mention a several examples. The first one would be how they included von Trotta's Goldel Lion victory early on. The second would be how they rushed in her fame doubts if she is the right person to create this movie only to allow us know that Bergman considered one of von Trotta's works among his top10 favourite movies. And how long she goes on about that. It never feels authentic as if she is humbled and proud, but as if she wants to say everybody in the audience that her work was appreciate by an all-time great. And closely similar to that, we have scenes from "Die bleierne Zeit" that just donät fit in at all in an Ingmar Bergman themed film. It's not like they showed scenes from another movies from Bergman''s top10. Also I was never convinced von Trotta's connection with Bergman here was significant enough for her to create this movie, but maybe that's just me. She adds nothing despite being seen on screen all the time and the now interesting and significant information, even by fresh rising Swedish filmmakers like Östlund, who have virtually no connection to Bergman, are because they have something of quality to say, not by any means that MvT somehow gets these notification out of them. She does nothing really, except being there and taking herself seriously. it was painful to watch. This was also among the main reasons I trust why the interview with Liv Ullmann that really should have been the center of the whole thing fell incredibly flat unfortunately. The only thing memorable there was maybe how MvT got the number of Ullmann's appearances in Bergman movies wrong and that tells it all. Disappointing. Luckily, to my surprise, virtually each another interview guest had something to tell that stayed more in the mind. But yeah, I want so much that somebody else should have made this movie or at least that we would not have to sit through MvT's fully forgettable visual presence here. The last shot being about her and not about Ullmann tells it all. Shameful. Also a bit of a pity that Maximum von Sydow wasn't part of it. Maybe he smelled the direction this was heading. I cannot imagine they did not ask him, also with the most memorable stage they included focusing on him. Nice for him I guess. This is really far away from the lvl it should have been and I only give it a very cautious thumbs-up. Hopefully we receive a better Bergman documentary in the next years. There's really a lot worth finding out about the boy and his art.
