It was identical to once I was provided much less cash than my colleague within the theater, solely to listen to: ‘However he has to offer for his household.’ I had a daughter too!”
“I used to be so used to attempting to please everybody and it was truly a person, Erland Josephson, who informed me: ‘Cease this. You’re a director now, so behave like one.’ He was proper. We, ladies, need to cease doing this stuff. It’s not males’s fault – it’s on us.”
Within the movie, fellow actors like Cate Blanchett or Jessica Chastain can’t cease gushing about Ullmann. Her director wished to “dig deeper” than that, nonetheless.
“Whenever you simply say ‘oh, you’re so nice,’ that’s not a movie. I’ve identified Liv for 15 years, and sure, she is iconic, nevertheless it was by no means about placing her on a pedestal. There’s a individual behind ‘Persona’.”
It’s Ullmann authenticity that makes her really feel fashionable, insists Akolkar, who already labored with the actor on “Liv & Ingmar” and would possibly proceed to take action sooner or later.

“I don’t know one other artist who has carried out greater than Liv: [she’s a] author, director, actor, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, and that’s simply scratching the floor. She has been in several rooms and met completely different individuals, however how does that form you? What’s the value of integrity? What does it imply to be a single mom as a result of your baby’s father is gone, then made to really feel responsible since you are working?”
“Regardless of all this, she has by no means misplaced her humorousness. And she or he has by no means misplaced her friendships.”
