Journeying throughthe year Bergman released two of Let Em In - Wings - Wings Greatest most acclaimed features Ett Liv - Lars In De Betou - Ett Liv Seventh Seal and Wild Strawberriesmade a TV film and directed four plays for theatre, Magnusson has amassed a wealth of archive and contemporary interviews, along with a fantastic Ett Liv - Lars In De Betou - Ett Liv of clips from his vast body of work.
Bergman the man, not the artist is under scrutiny here in this package which includes the feature length documentary I saw recently at the cinema and the twice-as-long four part TV version which of course, having not lived in Sweden, I hadn't seen until now. My cinema experience of the shorter version left me thinking.
The home experience of watching the four Ett Liv - Lars In De Betou - Ett Liv version left me feeling doubtful A monotonously discordant theme at that.
Bear with me It took me over a year to read every word of that, with each page being a foot and a half wide, crammed with small printed information. So I am not just a casual watcher, nor a newbie I was already aware of his astonishing and somewhat indecently serialistic love life, his unsettling admiration for Hitler and the Nazi movement untilwhich in hindsight appears shocking but we are rarely reminded by the media that such idolatry was shared by Part 1 - Palancar - Live At The Sky Castle nations at one time let alone one Swedish film directorhis appalling lack of responsibility or presence as a father The documentary ploughs deeper into all these areas and more.
Compelling though it is, I have questions for the filmmaker Jane Magnusson here What would Bergman's lover and on-screen muse Harriet Andersson have to say?
Where is his trusty, long-serving leading man Max Von Sydow? Interesting that neither of these took part in this bruising dressing-down. Liv Ullmann Her tearful recollection typical of her sincerity and warmth appears almost delusional against the barrage of negativity from the less important interviewees elsewhere.
How come Bergman's closest ally at the camera for thirty years, Sven Nikvist, only speaks for a matter of seconds? Likewise the great actor and lifelong friend Erland Josephson. I have long durations of footage of him talking about, as well as with, Ingmar. And yet all we get here is a short innocuous comment from Erland and later on a revelation by someone else of how Ingmar treated Erland very unfairly. News to me! Liv, Erland, Sven, Max, Harriet Their opportunity to speak in this documentary is far too brief or even entirely absent.
That's a huge cost to me. Yet a huge gain to someone het up on making a splash with a certain perspective. My other beef is that the recollections of his temper and ill feeling towards people is punctuated with montages of him shouting abruptly, swearing, banging a table with his fist, telling people to hurry up, etc. These instances are not new to anyone who has seen his behaviour on set before via the lengthy fly-on-the-wall documentaries of the past.
However the connotation of what is said then what is shown immediately after to back it up, fuels the viewer with the impression that we are seeing him behave like the egomaniac we are being told he was. If you rewind the footage though, see the expressions on faces, the body language, Ingmar's face itself Like a playful adult startling a child which we even see him do at one point, come to think of it!
That was often his way. Yes he was short-tempered at times. Wouldn't you be if time was precious, the workload was heavy, the subject matter even heavier and the stomach ulcers causing grief throughout? Just thought of other omissions. Where is John Donner? Where is Peter Cowie? Are there no archival interviews of Gunnar Bjornstrand or Ingrid Thulin that could have been used?
Did none of these Ett Liv - Lars In De Betou - Ett Liv fit the tone of the piece? Apart from all that, it's all glossily produced and admirably put together but not without minor flaws Streisand's comments in English at one point being subtitled in English, footage being repeated inexplicably as if the editor had forgot it had been already used, intrusive music which subconsciously enhances your mood or attitude I will keep this.
But if I ever watch it again I will have the salt beside me ready to take a big pinch. Newcomers to Bergman. Please note. Sign In. Keep track of everything you watch; tell your friends.
