Synopsis
Feeling a kinship with Ingmar Bergman, an American filmmaker-couple journey to the island of Fårö to pen their respective screenplays. Subtle marital difficulties, artistic rivalries, and adulterous leanings seem like re-enactments of Scenes from a Marriage. Yet, Hansen-Løve pitches her personal emotions into the film-within-a-film, exploring the mysteries of love and distance, representation and fictionalisation, in interlocking layers that feed on one another – and perhaps her real-life relationship with director Olivier Assayas.
