AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Minor but charming, the well-acted Bergman Island uses the titular filmmaker's legacy as the launchpad for a dreamlike rumination on romance and creativity.

Movie Info

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.

Critic Reviews for Bergman Island

All Critics (117) | Top Critics (38)

That the film manages to attain vast levels of emotional resonance speaks to Hansen-Løve's talent for mining her characters' quiet lives for all they're worth.

Mia Hansen-Løve's beguiling new film about love, cinema, and Ingmar Bergman oscillates gently between fantasy and realism.

Among the virtues of "Bergman Island" is how uncluttered it is generally, as well as its consistent quietude and Hansen-Løve's keenness of observation.

October 21, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

You don't actually have to love Ingmar Bergman, or even have seen a Bergman movie, to find Bergman Island terrific. Thoughtful, layered, deceptively light, it's among Hansen-Løve's best work.

[Mia] Hansen-Løve goes beyond any gossip, delivering a witty, warm commentary on the creative process and the dynamics of relationships where both partners are artists.
