After the completion of his final film Saraband in 2003 and just four years before his death, Ingmar Bergman sat down with Swedish documentarian Marie Nyreröd at his home on Fårö Island to discuss his extensive career but also his regrets, fears and liaisons with many of his lead actresses.

“I’ve often been asked what it was like directing the world’s foremost director. It was easy. Either he said yes or he said no. He said yes to answering any question at all. He said no to bicycling or swimming in front of the camera. I respected that.”
