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

All Critics (5) | 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.

September 10, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Reasonably engaging as far as it goes, Searching for Ingmar Bergman evinces great appreciation for the writer-director's legacy and offers the testimonies of numerous eminent enthusiasts, but it leaves a good deal to be desired...

May 16, 2018 | Full Review…

By reiterating her own cinematic output, cultural importance, and significance in the story, von Trotta rather uses Bergman as a launchpad to discuss authorship and challenge the idea of a canon.

September 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Von Trotta's personal essay, complete with key interviews and a multitude of film clips, is an affectionate portrait that rekindles the flame of one of cinema's towering figures.

September 9, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Margarethe Von Trotta's many personal connections to Ingmar Bergman lend a fresh, distinctive flavour to Searching For Ingmar Bergman.
