With a screenplay by Academy Award Winner Ingmar Bergman (Fanny and Alexander), Bille August (Pelle the Conqueror) masterfully directs this heartwarming love story following the lives of Bergman's parents.
Henrik Bergman, an impoverished Lutheran pastor, falls in love with a wealthy girl, Anna. Despite her mother's attempts to discourage the relationship, Anna's love grows stronger and the two eventually wed.
A compelling look at the hardships, extreme faith and rigid discipline of his father and his lifelong commitment to his wife, Best Intentions sheds a powerful light onto the themes that have appeared in all of Ingmar Bergman's best movies.
