"Reverent and mindful homage..."
4 October 2012 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Indian screenwriter, cinematographer and documentary director Dheeraj Akolkar's debut full-length documentary feature which he wrote, is based on excerpts from Liv Ullmann's autobiography "Changing" (1977), her private letters to Ingmar Bergman, his letters to her and his autobiography "The Magic Lantern" (1988). It premiered at the 40th Norwegian International Film Festival Haugesund in 2012 and is a Norway-Sweden-UK-India-Czech Republic co-production which was shot on location in Oslo, Norway and Fårö, Sweden and produced by Norwegian film producer Rune T. Trondsen. It tells the story about the personal and professional relationship between Norwegian screenwriter, director and actress Liv Ullmann and Swedish filmmaker Ingmar Bergman (1918-2007), which began in 1965 during the production of one of Ingmar Bergman's masterpieces "Persona" (1966), their first collaboration, on the Baltic Sea Island of Fårö in Gotland, Sweden when Liv Ullmann was in her mid-twenties and Ingmar Bergman in his late forties.

Finely and subtly directed by Indian filmmaker Dheeraj Akolkar, this somewhat biographical remembrance which is narrated by Swedish actor Samuel Fröler and by and from Liv Ullmann's point of view, draws an intimate portrayal of the renowned romance between a distinctive filmmaker from Sweden and an internationally acclaimed actress from Norway. While notable for its atmospheric cinematography by Norwegian documentary director and cinematographer Hallvard Bræin and pictures of Liv Ullmann and Ingmar Bergman, this vivid portrait which examines the love, loneliness, rage and friendship within a 42-year-long relationship and twelve film collaborations contains a good score by Swedish composer Stefan Nilsson.

This at times romantic and unsentimental flashback love-story which appreciatively depicts a lifelong connection regarding two prominent icons of cinema history whom has made an everlasting contribution to cinema, is impelled and reinforced by its fragmented narrative structure, rhythmic pace and the fine editing by Indian film editor Tushar Ghogale. A reverent and mindful homage to two human beings whose stories one may never have known if it wasn't for their achievements and the worldwide recognition they have received from filmmakers, actors and actresses, authors, film critics and cinema audiences.
