Tim Roth is Tony and Vicky Krieps is Chris, a filmmaking couple who’ve rented a place on the Swedish island of Fårö, the legendary setting for many of Ingmar Bergman’s films, in order to work on their respective screenplays
‘Hansen-Love doesn’t turn “Bergman Island” into a self-conscious philosophical puzzle. It unspools with an easy, fresh-air naturalism against a picturesque backdrop that doesn’t necessarily conform to anyone’s innermost imaginings. The mood, underscored by Robin Williamson’s sprightly music, is mainly comical, and the artists — Tony and Chris, at least — seem more playful than tormented… That may be because they both understand the paradox that “Bergman Island” so brilliantly enacts. It’s a movie that isn’t quite sure whether it wants to be one, or which one it wants to be. Which makes it feel like more than just a movie.’—A.O. Scott, The New York Times
