Critic Reviews for Searching for Ingmar Bergman (Ingmar Bergman - Vermächtnis eines Jahrhundertgenies)

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Although Von Trotta skips around Bergman's filmography a bit haphazardly, and touches upon his romantic proclivities in a frustratingly brief manner, there's little room to go wrong when a film is seemingly 50 per cent composed of Bergman's own footage.
