A film "about Bergman’s hunger and genius, his insane lust for life, the stories he needed to tell, and about something else — a moment in the 20th century when a great many people got hooked on movies that turned the darkness of our hidden hearts into drama that scalded and cleansed you". (Variety, Owen Gleiberman)

Magnusson’s film focuses on Protected content , which she calls “Bergman’s mad year”. This was the year he produced his two masterpieces, Wild Strawberries and The Seventh Seal, directed his first television film and put on four stage productions, include a production of Ibsen’s Peer Gynt, which had until then been deemed almost unstageable. (The Guardian, Richard Orange)

“I wanted to make a celebratory film about him, about Protected content , because it’s amazing what he does there, but also to show the cost of working that hard,” she said. “I really think he’s the most interesting Swede ever. Just his constant production of film and theatre and writing – at least in our country, it’s unprecedented.” (Jane Magnusson, director)

Director: Jane Magnusson With: Liv Ullmann, Thorsten Flinck, Barbra Streisand, Elliott Gould, Lena Endre
