BERGMAN: A YEAR IN A LIFE

OUT 25 JAn­UARY

Total Film - - Dialogue -

Fo­cus­ing on 1957, the year Ing­mar Bergman made four films (in­clud­ing The Sev­enth Seal and Wild Straw­ber­ries) and four the­atre pro­duc­tions, but delv­ing for­wards and back­wards from this piv­otal point, Jane Mag­nus­son’s can­did doc­u­men­tary ex­am­ines the man and the artist. It’s all here: the ge­nius, the wom­an­is­ing, the de­ser­tion of his chil­dren, the Berg­ma­nia, the ego, the tyranny, the stom­ach ul­cers. “The cam­era is such a phe­nom­e­nal tool when it comes to reg­is­ter­ing the hu­man soul,” says Bergman in one of many archive in­ter­views. Mag­nus­son’s doc proves just this. Jamie Gra­ham
