A couple of American filmmakers, Chris (Vicky Krieps) and Tony (Tim Roth) 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, the fascination for the island operates on Chris and souvenirs of her first love resurface. Lines between reality and fiction will then progressively blur and tear our couple even more apart.
Acclaimed at Cannes, Bergman Island is noted director Mia Hansen-Løve’s latest finely wrought study of relationships and how they exist, can only exist within a specific time and place. Vicky Krieps and Tim Roth carefully trace their characters’ shifts while Australia’s Mia Wasikowska centres the film’s meta conceits around filmmaking and artistry.
