Whether you’re an aficionado or a newcomer to Ingmar Bergman, Margarethe von Trotta’s film offers a rich sampling of his classic scenes combined with insights from his family, colleagues, and the filmmakers he influenced. Von Trotta has her own warm memories of knowing Bergman. He placed her 1981 work Marianne and Juliane on a list of 11 films that were important to him. But she doesn’t shy away from addressing the complexity of his character.

He fathered nine children with six women. We hear his son Daniel observe that Bergman was closer to memories of his childhood than he was to his own children. Our appreciation of his films is deepened when we listen to interviews with directors such as Olivier Assayas, Ruben Östlund, and Mia Hansen-Løve. The critic Stig Björkman helps to place Bergman’s work in a Swedish context, and director-actor Liv Ullmann emphasizes his aspiration to write at the level of Ibsen and Strindberg.
