Charming and well-acted BERGMAN ISLAND uses the titular filmmaker's legacy as the launchpad for a dreamlike rumination on romance and creativity. “BERGMAN ISLAND” is a heart-stoppingly poignant stunner. David Ehrlich, indieWire Krieps, who's phenomenal, has such a natural, lived-in rapport with Roth - the actor doing his best work in years here - that you start to feel the undercurrents in their relationship moving like water round your toes. –Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph (UK) A self-reflexive Russian nesting doll-like mix of story in story in story, commenting on itself while throwing plenty of manna to the cinephile masses. –Ben Croll, The Wrap BERGMAN ISLAND is showing at the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center on Friday, October 15 through Thursday, October 28. Show times are available at www.TheRoss.org, by consulting your newspaper, or by calling the MRRMAC film information line at 402.472.5353. The Motion Picture Association of America has rated BERGMAN ISLAND R (Language|Some Sexual Content|Nudity). BERGMAN ISLAND follows a couple of American filmmakers, Chris (Vicky Krieps) and Tony (Tim Roth), who retreat to the mythical Fårö island for the summer. In this wild, breathtaking landscape where Bergman lived and shot his most celebrated pieces, they hope to find inspiration for their upcoming films. As days spent separately pass by, the fascination for the island operates on Chris and souvenirs of her first love resurface. Lines between reality and fiction will then progressively blur and tear our couple even more apart.
