Searching for Ingmar Bergman Directed by Margarethe von Trotta

Critics reviews

Von Trotta walks over very well-trod ground, interviewing the usual suspects (although it’s always good to hear from them), listening to well-known stories told elsewhere. However, it’s still an engaging and accessible look at one of the most important figures in cinema.

Searching is a tribute to Ingmar Bergman, but one which never lets go of its perspective, nor diminishes the presence of its director in the face of Bergman himself. To search is to take an active role, and rather than submitting to Bergman’s presence, von Trotta embraces that agency.
