“Ingrid Bergman was far more than just a sweet, virtuous, ‘natural’ Swedish girl—she was a dark sensualist over whom many men might go mad. Her very gaze delivered a climate of adult romantic expectation.”
Adored by millions for her luminous beauty and elegance, at the height of her career Bergman commanded a love that has hardly ever been matched, until her marriage fell apart and created an international scandal. Here the renowned film writer David Thomson gives his own unique take on a woman who was constantly driven by her passions and by her need to act, even if it meant sacrificing everything.
