Dir. Mia Hansen-Løve. France/Sweden. 2021, 105 mins. DCP. With Vicky Krieps, Tim Roth, Mia Wasikowska, Anders Danielsen Lie. The latest film from Mia Hansen-Løve (Things to Come) follows a couple of American filmmakers, Chris (Krieps) and Tony (Roth), who retreat to the mythical Fårö Island for the summer. In this wild, breathtaking landscape where Ingmar Bergman lived and shot his most celebrated pieces, they hope to find inspiration for their upcoming films. As days spent separately pass by, Chris grows inspired but also skeptical of her relationship, and souvenirs of her first love resurface. Lines between reality and fiction progressively blur, and Hansen-Løve introduces an entirely new story that takes over the narrative. Beautiful and complexly etched without ever seeming gimmicky or tricky, Bergman Island is a film about a woman who wrests both romantic and creative control back into her life. An IFC Films release.
