Bergman honored at Gothenburg

Festival stages retrospective for filmmaker

The Gothenburg Film Festival (Jan. 25-Feb. 4) will screen 50 Ingmar Bergman pics in a retrospective celebrating the multi-hyphenate’s 90th birthday next July.

Fest will also hand out the Ingmar Bergman Intl. Award, given to a first-time helmer working in the spirit of Bergman.

Prize is a week’s stay on the island of Faro, where the helmer lives, during the annual Bergman Week, which celebrates the filmmaker’s work with films, guests and seminars.

The 2007 Bergman Week wrapped this weekend. Guests included thesp-helmer Kenneth Branagh, and regular Bergman cast members Bibi Andersson and his wife, Kabi Laretei.

Branagh screened his film “The Magic Flute” and introduced a screening of Bergman’s “Fanny and Alexander.”

“My friends sometimes ask me if I am influenced by this film,” Branagh said. “My answer is: ‘I am not only influenced — I have stolen from it!”
