Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words
In the spring of 2011 Isabella Rossellini met with director, writer and film critic Stig Björkman to suggest he make a film about her mama.
Ingrid Bergman was the golden girl of Hollywood’s golden age - a three time Academy Award winner best remembered for her roles in Casablanca (1942), Notorious (1946) and Autumn Sonata (1978) to name just a few.
This is an engrossing study and intimate portrait, told through Bergman’s personal diaries, letters and photos, and lively Super 8 film footage (mostly shot by Ingrid herself).
What emerges is some of her most defining moments: death of her parents, lonely childhood, realisation that acting was her future, marriages, children, love affairs and of course the film successes, failures and Hollywood's cruel exile.
Stig Björkman had full access to her children including Pia Lindstorm, from her first marriage to Petter, and Robert and Isabella Rossellini who flesh-out Ingrid’s character and attitude towards them and her somewhat unique way of mothering - all expressed with honesty and warmth.
What Bjorkman really shows us is her courage, sense of fun and sheer determination to stay independent and true to herself - a truly modern woman.
