In spring 2011, director Stig Björkman meets IngridBergman's daughter Isabella Rossellini and she suggests him to "make a film about Mama". Through Isabella, Stig is able to tell Ingrid's story through herownwords and images. Seven time Academy Award-nominee and three time Academy Award-winner IngridBergman was one of the most talented actresses of Hollywood's Golden Age with great performances in films such as CASABLANCA (1942), GASLIGHT (1944) and and AUTUMN SONATA (1978). Through never-before-seen private footage, notes, letters, diaries and interviews with her children, this documentary presents a personal portrait and captivating look behind the scenes of the remarkable life of a young Swedish girl who became one of the most celebrated actresses of American and World cinema.
On two occasions in the film, letters purportedly written by IngridBergman are read out in which the word "paparazzi" (to mean a probing reporter) is used. It is generally accepted that this word (taken from an Italian regional slang word meaning sparrows) was inspired by a character in Federico Fellini's La Dolce Vita, but the letters in question were written in the early to mid 1950s, prior to the film's release.

Absorbing. It felt like entering a dream. We get a nuanced, complicated portrait of a luminous icon.
My thoughts about the film are the same as Isabella's about the correspondance; I thought there would be a story in here about a woman becoming a star in Hollywood, about struggle and cinema, but its just all children. Which would be fine, if not for Bergman's tendancy to shy away from thinking/writing about the negatives in that relationship, and once even from acting it out. Vague, but hypnotic.
