Ingrid Bergman - In Her Own Words (Jag Ar)

A documentary memoir of the Hollywood icon

Overseen by Bergman’s daughter Isabella Rosselini, this heartfelt documentary digs deep into the Swedish siren’s own archive of home movie footage and diary entries (read by ‘Danish Girl’ actress Alicia Vikander) to offer an intimate and at times unforgiving portrait of a wife, mother and megastar. It’s most fascinating when dealing with the fallout from her divorce from first husband Petter Lindstrom and very public affair with director Roberto Rosselini – a reminder of how much gossip, scandal and public opinion were at the heart of Hollywood long before Twitter. And Isabella Rosselini’s recollections of her mother – as a loving but often absent presence – are very moving.
