MUBI, the theatrical distributor and global curated film streaming service
has announced that it has acquired all rights for Mia Hansen-Løve’s Bergman Island for the UK and Ireland, and plans
to release the film theatrically.
Written and directed by Hansen-Løve (Things to Come, Eden), the film will receive its world premiere at the 2021 Cannes
Film Festival, and stars Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread, Hanna, Das Boot) and Tim Roth ( Chronic, The Hateful Eight, Pulp Fiction) along with Mia
Wasikowska (Maps to the Stars, Crimson Peak,Stoker) and Anders Danielsen Lie (Personal Shopper, Oslo, August 31st).
tells the story of 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.
