Goodbye Ingrid!

The first and last time the Bergmans met on screen! The only time Ingrid Bergman acted in a film directed by Ingmar Bergman, and given the frequent falling out of the pair on set that is not a surprise. It was also the great woman's final screen role. Though she was only three years older than the director, she died just four years after filming this, and the director outlived her by a quarter of a century.

Filmed in Jar, Norway.

After a prolonged period of separation, world famous pianist Charlotte (Ingrid Bergman) decides to visit her daughter, Eva (Liv Ullmann). She is surprised to find that her other daughter, Helena, is no longer staying at the mental institution where Charlotte placed her, but is now living with Eva.

As the day moves into night, mother and daughter open up about their feelings and misgivings towards one another. Before long, Charlotte, who chose her musical career over fulfilling her role as a mother, is forced to re-appraise her life and the choices she has made. By the time the night is over, the relationship between these two women will undergo a profound change.

Winner of a Bodil Award and a Golden Globe, this stunning and beautifully-observed film features an historic if troubled union of two of Sweden's national treasures, Ingrid Bergman and Ingmar Bergman, working together for the first and only time.

  • Originally intended to run for four hours, this harrowing film was the result of a difficult shoot, during which Ingmar and Ingrid Bergman frequently fell out and Ms Bergman had to resume treatment for the cancer that essentially killed her. The film is superbly acted throughout, particularly by Ullmann, yet it was Ingrid Bergman who received the Oscar nomination, as, less deservingly, did Ingmar, for a script over-laden with theatrical speeches.
