Description

Bergman Island follows a couple of American filmmakers, Chris (Vicky Krieps) and Tony (Tim Roth), who retreat to the mythical Fårö island for the summer. In this wild, breathtaking landscape where Bergman lived and shot his most celebrated pieces, they hope to find inspiration for their upcoming films. As days spent separately pass by, the fascination for the island operates on Chris and souvenirs of her first love resurface. Lines between reality and fiction will then progressively blur and tear our couple even more apart.

The film is preceded by the short Bergman's Ghosts (Gabe Klinger, 4 min), a meditation on Fårö featuring Mia Hansen-Løve and the island’s noted “Bergman Safari” tour, filmed during the production of Bergman Island.

"A delicate, haunting little Russian doll of a movie." Rachel Handler, New York Magazine/Vulture

"…a searching exploration of reality and art in the way they mirror, propel and feed on one another, washing ashore remembrances both dreamy and lifelike." Tomris Laffly, RogerEbert.com

"…a heart-stoppingly poignant stunner." David Ehrlich, indieWire
