Another excellent Bergman film
While not as out and out thunderous as Bergman's beloved classics, such as Wild Strawberries, The Seventh Seal, etc..., The Best Intentions is still a great movie.

Part of a biographic series, this film chronicles how his father and mother met and married, including the best intentions of both of them and the wife's mother. It follows them from the city through early years struggling to find meaning as a pastor for a small village.

The acting and screenplay are superb. The narrative is very accessible, and may resonate with any viewer, especially one trying to deal with a new wife or mother-in-law whose intentions are not exactly similar to one's own. Still, this is not a Hollywood fluff movie; it is meant for thinking and savoring.
