The ending of this film is brilliant. There was a section of it around the third act where it felt like the film was lost when it was only supposed to be the protagonist. It'll definitely be worth a re-watch some point especially if there's a directors' cut.
This one I never saw because his shows in French were always kind of mythical to me. After seeing clips of his first attempts at shows in France, this is like night and day.
And, of course, he throws in a gag about the Queen that’s basically an excuse for him to conjugate a vern, so it’s brilliant for those who learned French as a second language.
The treatment of the subjects is rather vignette via interview, but it does tie together into one unifying theme that could address the concerns of many of those Bergman inteviewed in his adopted home. Having seen Bergman Island before, it’s great to see his perspective on the place and the people. It’s also fascinating to watch in hindsight knowing there’s a followup ten years later, making it somewhat like the Up series.
