  • Bergman fans will love this film, but the great thing about "Searching for Ingmar Bergman" is that budding cineastes who are curious about his work will find much value in it as well.

  • That von Trotta has made her own uniquely inviting tour of his triumphs, anguishes, and longstanding themes - in essence a roomy portrait of the artist as an engaged, fallible searcher - is its own gift of sorts, from one acolyte of cinema to another.
