This article draws attention to the cross-border implications of Ingrid Bergman's three marriages and their dissolutions. Ingrid Bergman (b. 1915) can be regarded as Sweden's internationally most celebrated film star and actress, ever (beside Greta Garbo). Her often turbulent family life crossed national borders and gave rise to difficult legal problems which could be solved only by the creative and, occasionally, questionable use of Private International Law. She obtained, e.g., a migratory divorce from her first husband (Petter Lindstrom) in Mexico, where she also concluded a proxy marriage with the Italian film director Roberto Rossellini, in evasion of the laws of Sweden, Italy and the United States. The "flavour" of morality and the impact of religion has, afterwards, decreased in European family law, facilitating life for all Europeans.
