Bergman Island

Married filmmakers Chris (Vicky Krieps) and Tony (Tim Roth) travel to the Swedish island of Fårö, where Ingmar Bergman lived and filmed several iconic films. While Tony attends a Bergman conference, Chris explores the island and is inspired to start writing a screenplay. In a film-within-a-film structure, we then see that screenplay come to life. Chris’ film focuses on former lovers Amy (Mia Wasikowska) and Joseph (Anders Danielsen Lie), who are reunited at a wedding on Fårö after many years apart. But that story might reflect some of the cracks forming in Chris and Tony’s own relationship…

French filmmaker Mia Hansen-Løve’s first English-language is a relaxing, subtle drama that’s part celebration and part critique of Bergman’s cinematic legacy.

Director: Mia Hansen-Løve

Cast: Vicky Krieps, Tim Roth, Mia Wasikowska, Anders Danielsen Lie
