A very human study of a relationship
5 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

A very touching and human film about the 40 some odd year relationship between one of the greatest directors and greatest actresses of the last hundred years.

This is probably not a ideal film for those not familiar with Bergman and Ullman's work together. The film seems to assume a knowledge of that work, it's depth and importance. It's also not for film scholars looking for insight into either artist's working methods. This 85 minute film is solely about the course of a relationship that started when Ullman was 25 and Bergman 46 (and married), grew into a passionate affair, produced a child, ended up falling apart, only to be reborn in a new way – lasting until Bergman's death in 2007.

A lot of the film is an extended interview with Ullman who is candid, charming, funny and moving. We hear an actor read some of Bergman's letter's to Ullman (a slightly awkward device), but there's no question that the film is her perspective on the experience of a complex relationship between two great, vulnerable and sometimes very neurotic geniuses. There is some interesting occasional use of clips from the films that show how their off screen relationship was clearly influencing the work between them. But if you go in expecting some overview of their great collaborations you'll be disappointed. But as a human story of a love that lasted a lifetime, it's very rewarding.
