You'll probably love it or be ambivalent
22 April 2018 | by iantraderSee all my reviews

Interesting documentary.

Let's get the bad bits out the way first. The subtitles are white and often appear on a white background. Bit of a fail there, guys.

Also, the music varies from well Over The Top, particularly during the initial scenes, to just plain discordant at the end. It's not rockets science guys (the music is credited to more than one person) and it's a documentary, not a Bergman film for goodness sake!

So, to the movie...

Ingmar Bergman is a legend in the film world.

The bottom line here, though, is that he was a writer and director of his day. It would take a churlish director - and there is one in the movie - to belittle his achievements but however influential his movies may have been, they were of their day and you couldn't possibly make a Bergmanesque movie now. That's not to detract from his abilities or legacy at all, just to put it into perspective.

I love movies about artists and I quite liked this one. It's a little more of an insight into Bergman, his movies and little bit of his life, but it's mostly about directors saying how good he was.

You may come away with a few tit bits of info about the man and his movies - and some directors' thoughts on them - but there's no great revelation.

Looking inside his house is wonderful and being there must have been inspiring but there's little here that anyone with a passing knowledge of Bergman probably didn't know before.

But still watch it!
