Whether headlining films in Sweden, Italy, or Hollywood, Ingrid Bergman always pierced the screen with a singular soulfulness. With this new documentary, made on the occasion of the one hundredth anniversary of Bergman s birth, director Stig Björkman allows us unprecedented access to her world, culling from the most personal of archival materials letters, diary entries, photographs, and Super 8 and 16 mm footage Bergman herself shot and following her from youth to tumultuous married life and motherhood. Intimate and artful, this lovingly assembled portrait, narrated by actor Alicia Vikander, provides luminous insight into the life and career of an undiminished legend.

Still, she continued acting. Refused to be a victim. Dealt bravely with the cancer that cut her life short. An extraordinary life and an inspiration!

The film is made with honesty, intelligence and loving care but, if I have a personal criticism, the readings by Alicia Vickander, although with an authentic Swedish accent, are too mournful, without any injection of the humour and high spirits she was renowned for. It has a Michael Nyman soundtrack which, if you enjoy his distinctive trade-mark sound, is good news but I find him repetitive and wildly overrated and it jars after a while.
A screen legend, remembered by most for the much loved but overrated film she made with Bogart. She craved world fame but became bored and disenchanted with Hollywood her two masterpieces: were made with Hitckcock (‘Notorious’), and ‘Journey to Italy’, with her second husband, Roberto Rossellini, Some might also include Renoir’s ‘Elina et les hommes’ and Ingmar Bergman’s ‘Autumn Sonata’.
I remember a, possibly apocryphal, story about the two old ladies who went to see Ingmar’s harrowing and explicit ‘Cries and Whispers’, thinking it was an Ingrid Bergman film.
It is entirely possible, as my strait-laced Father once walked into a multiplex showing ‘Blue Velvet’ by mistake and I’m not sure that he ever recovered.
She played St Joan twice on film (and on stage) and got away with it despite being far too old.
A former colleague’s claim to fame was that she once saw Ingrid quite by chance in a London bank and I think that was the only time I’ve ever envied someone seeing a celebrity.
In these days when celebrity has been devalued, all women claim to be ‘strong’,and quite ordinary actors are called stars, Ingrid Bergman was genuinely extraordinary: independent, obsessed, ambitious, a rare star who could act and not just “behave”, possessed of a quite natural and luminous beauty, who, “ took the blows and did it her way.”
This is probably the definitive film about her her life and, as all too often often is the case with biography, the home movies are a magical revelation and steal the show. Essential viewing for all her many fans.
