”One of the last great samurai who unyieldingly fights for ideals
and convictions. In our ‘heavy industry’ there aren’t many like him.”

Ingmar Bergman

Liv Till Varje Pris

Liv till varje pris

En film av Stefan Jarl om Bo Widerberg med Thommy Berggren som ciceron.”Liv till varje pris” var Bo Widerbergs konstnärliga och personliga credo.


Live At Any Cost

When director Bo Wider-berg died, in May 1997, there was no choice for Stefan Jarl. Bo Widerberg is namely not only one of his role models, he was also a close friend. Life at Any Cost is therefore both a film of tribute and a portrait of one of Sweden’s most gifted filmmakers of all time. But besides its sad contents, Life at Any Cost is also a very funny film. Not in the least thanks to Bo Wider-berg’s favorite actor Thommy Berggren, who in this memorable film delivers one of his best performances.

An emotional, often achingly funny portrait of Swedish filmmaker Bo Widerberg, this documentary is a small gem that’s a must.”
/Variety

Life At Any Cost is a loving and very amusing homage to Bo Widerberg… moving, tender and affectionate.”
/Sydsvenska Dagbladet

Best film at the Gothenburg Film Festival: Life At Any Cost, Stefan Jarl´s moving and very touching film about Bo Widerberg.”
