Victor Sjostrom (1879-1960) was one of the better-known Swedish actors and directors, and this is a well-balanced documentary on his film work, his general artistic history, and his relationships with colleagues such as Ingmar Bergman. Scenes from his early silents (Terje Vigen, Phantom Carriage ) illustrate his skills in that era, still photographs chronicle some of his work from his Hollywood period (1923-1930), and Ingmar Bergman comments on the years in which he and Sjostrom knew each other (1940s-1950s), worked together (Wild Strawberries, 1957), and also had their differences.
