'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, Ingrid Bergman commanded a love that has hardly ever been matched at the height of her career, until her marriage fell apart and created an international scandal.
Here renowned film writer David Thomson gives his own unique and original take on a woman who was constantly driven by her passions and by her need to act, even if it meant sacrificing everything.
