In Mia Hansen-Løve’s drama, a pair of relationships play out in tandem, each one influencing the other in elegant and subtle ways. Anthony Sanders (Tim Roth) is an acclaimed British director and admirer of Ingmar Bergman. He and his partner Chris (Vicky Krieps), who is a filmmaker herself, go on a writing retreat to the Swedish island of Fårö. They stay at Bergman’s own house and even sleep in the bed from his 1973 masterpiece Scenes From a Marriage. The couple is hardly on the brink of splitting, but there is an amicable coolness to their relationship that suggests they have settled into comfortable roles. Delicate, droll, and imbued with a haunting, understated wistfulness, Bergman Island wears its layers so lightly it may take a while to notice just how much is going on. Parenthood, relationships, and the creative process: three key elements of the cinema of Mia Hansen-Løve casually combine in Bergman Island, a playfully self-aware meta-portrait of the filmmaker and, indeed, of filmmaking itself.
