Did You Know?

In the film, Ingmar Bergman list he has the following demons: Demon of Disaster (noted as being his worst demon), Demon of Fear, Demon of Rage and Demon of Grudges. The demon he says he does not have is the: Demon of Nothingness.See more »
Ingmar Bergman, Himself:We had the world premiere of "The Magic Flute" film here in this room. The room wasn't a cinema then, it was a film studio. We'd made a lot of "Scenes from a Marriage" here. And before it was a studio, it was a barn. I remember that we inaugurated the cinema with Chaplin's "Circus," which I show on every birthday.
Marie Nyreröd, Herself:14 July.
Ingmar Bergman, Himself:Yes. The room fills up with children. We're like children, all of us!

Talking to the butcher, 18 September 2015
Author: drjgardner from California

I'm a big big fan of Bergman's films, especially his work in the 50s ("Seventh Seal", "Wild Strawberries", "The Magician") and early 60s ("Virgin Spring", "Through a Glass Darkly", "Persona"). Somewhere in the mid 60s his films lost their appeal to me and eventually I just stopped watching them.

This documentary is more of a personal film about Bergman rather than a film about his films. If you're expecting to learn about the films per se you will be disappointed. If you want to learn about how many children he has, or his relationship with his parents, or how he likes to spend his day, then this is the film you're looking for.

In retrospect, it's a bit like eating sausage and then talking to the butcher about his life and his career making sausage. As much as I used to enjoy eating sausage, the life of the butcher holds no real interest for me.
