Maslow Entertainment has today announced the release date for, BERGMAN ISLAND. Directed and written by Mia Hansen-Løve (Eden, Things to Come) and starring Mia Wasikowska (Judy & Punch, Tracks, The Kids Are All Right), Tim Roth (Pulp Fiction, The Hateful Eight), Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread, OLD) and Anders Danielsen Lie (22 July, Personal Shopper, The Worst Person In The World), the beguiling drama about life, love, and art is set to arrive in Australian cinemas nationally on January 6, 2022. The film will be distributed by Maslow Entertainment in partnership with Umbrella Entertainment.
A filmmaking couple, Chris (Krieps) and Tony (Roth), retreat to the breathtaking and mythical Fårö Island in Sweden for the Summer, a place where the legendary director Ingmar Bergman shot some of his most celebrated films. While hoping to find creative inspiration, but spending most of their days apart, memories of Chris’ first love are evoked and the lines between reality and fiction progressively begin to blur, ultimately making her question her current relationship.
Hitting cinemas today is the brand new horror thriller Piercing which stars Australian actress Mia Wasikowska. Today we sat down and chatted to Mia about her role in the film and found out that it is one of the most intense roles she has ever played in her career.

Monster Fest Presents in association with Rialto Distribution will release Nicolas Pesce’s PIERCING to cinemas in limited release from Thursday January 10th, including a Special Event Screening with Q&A by actress Mia Wasikowska (CRIMSON PEAK, MAPS TO THE STARS) at Dendy Cinemas Newtown.
PIERCING is the sophomore feature from Nicolas Pesce, the writer/director of 2016 festival favourite THE EYES OF MY MOTHER and is based on a novel by Ryû Murakami, author of AUDITION, on which the Takashi Miike film was based.
Reed (Christopher Abbott) kisses his wife and baby goodbye, seemingly headed away on business. But instead of clothes, he’s packed a murder kit. He’s planned everything meticulously: he’ll check into a hotel, call an escort service, and kill an unsuspecting prostitute. Only then will he rid himself of his murderous urges. But Reed’s plan could not account for Jackie (Mia Wasikowska), the alluring and mysterious call girl who arrives at his room. When an unexpected incident occurs, Reed and Jackie find themselves in a pulsating game of cat-and-mouse. Has he been found out? Is this all just some strange game? Or are they falling in love? As the night progresses, Reed starts to lose control. Before the night is over, a feverish nightmare will unfold, and the pair will seal their bond in blood.
PIERCING opens in select cinemas from January 10, for locations
