...MEN FILMEN ÄR MIN ÄLSKARINNA

Year of production : 2010 Country : SWEDEN Length : 66 minutes
...But Film Is My Mistress is an attempt to capture Ingmar Bergman’s extraordinary filmmaker persona based on behind-the-scenes footage from eight movies, from Persona in 1965 to Saraband in 2003. Guided by Liv Ullmann and with commentaries from a number of prominent filmmakers for whom Bergman is and remains an important influence - such as Woody Allen, Olivier Assayas, Bernardo Bertolucci, Arnaud Desplechin, John Sayles, Martin Scorsese and Lars von Trier, the film provides a vivid portrait of the artist who in each new project found a challenge for himself and for the people he worked with - both actors and colleagues behind the camera.
