Liv & Ingmar (Liv & Ingmar)

In the history of filmmaking, they are one of the greatest couples. Liv Ullmann and Ingmar Bergman met in 1964. They lived together for five years, had a child and in their lifetime made 12 films together. Now, almost five decades later, Ingmar is no more, but their love has never died. In this film we meet Liv Ullmann, spending some days with the film crew in Mr. Bergmans famous house at Faaro, Sweden. In the interviews, she talks about all aspects of the life and work with him. What she reveals is reinforced with scenes from their films, showing how their personal relationship inspired some of the films they created.
