Ingmar Bergman Sweden, 1997

Ozu_Teapot's rating of the film In the Presence of a Clown

(5) Coming very late in Bergman’s career the TV movie In the Presence of a Clown is set in a world of people making film and theatre, the twin artistic centres of his life. Actors, musicians, and performers who were so often the protagonists of his own films are in the spotlight here too. Their triumphs and humiliations, struggles with mental illness, and Death is waiting in the wings in the form of Rigmor the clown.
