Storyline

All three documentaries is mainly shot in the home of Ingmar Bergman. This is the first time ever that a film maker has access to Ingmar Bergman in his home at the small island Fårö in the Baltic Sea. Bergman and the Cinema starts with Frenzy from 1944 and ends with Saraband from 2003. It contains unique behind-the-scenes material from Bergman's private archive. Bergman and the Theatre is about some of Bergman's 125 theatrical stagings and about his delight with the TV medium with successes as Scenes from a marriage. In Bergman and Fårö Island he talks about the childhood that shaped him. He shows where he shot his film Persona and fell in love - and he lists his worst demons! Written by Anonymous

Interesting stuff.
24 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Some of this material is on DVD extras of Bergman films. Here we have it all in one place. For a Bergman fan, this documentary is fascinating, for we see inside his home and hear about his daily life. Bergman is heavy, a serious and thoughtful artist reflecting on a life towards its end. He summarizes his feelings on death and religion. His wisdom is undeniable. Bergman fully admits his faults and openly discusses his creativity. Highlights are him trying to answer questions on Persona and a part about how scene three from Scenes from a Marriage is directly from his life. Overall, an important document for any serious fan of cinema.
