Ingrid Bergman In Her Own Words

Jag är Ingrid

Directed by Stig Björkman
Sweden, 2015


This is a lovingly crafted film about one of the cinema’s most luminous and enchanting presences, composed from her letters and diaries (extracts of which are read by Alicia Vikander), the memories of her children (Pia Lindström and Isabella, Ingrid, and Roberto Rossellini), and a few close friends.
