    Puntaje Original: 4.0 Escribe los diálogos mas ridículamente cursis que puedas crear, no te olvides de no darle suficiente espacio de desarrollo a la narración de eventos, básate en la vida de un líder religioso sin ninguna personalidad interesante y hazlo enamorarse de una adinerada niña estúpida sin la menor perspectiva de la vida. Ahora adáptalo a una película...¡Felicitaciones!, acabes de ganar una Palma de Oro.

    After he officially retired from directing, Ingmar Bergman wrote this screenplay about his parents ... their meeting, marriage and early life together. Billie August, straight from "Pelle the Conqueror" with Max Von Sydow, was chosen to direct. Von Sydow appears as Bergman's maternal grandfather. August's wife Pernilla stars as Bergman's mother Anna. The couple come from very different socio-economic backgrounds, so both families oppose the marriage. Anna is advantaged and somewhat spoiled, so she has difficulty adjusting to a life as the wife of a rural preacher. Bergman's father Henrik comes from a background of extreme poverty and nurses a deep hurt that lashes out at others when conflict arises. The version I watched is the 3 hour feature, edited down from 5 1/2 hour version originally aired on Swedish television. Everything about this is top notch, from the performances to the production design to the direction.

    La ví por primera vez hace 10 años atrás... Creo que de las 3 horas que dura, yo empecé a llorisquear a la hora y media... o sea que fue re molesto ver la película al lado mío. Una de mis películas preferidas de todos los tiempos, no sé por qué me olvidé de agregarla antes a la lista. Perfecta, intensa, profunda, terrible... Como dice la sinopsis de arriba, la historia de los padres de Ingmar Bergman... siempre sentí que Bergman aprendió a entender y perdonar los errores de sus no tan perfectos padres a través de ésta película, por eso éste guión me parecío un ejercicio de perdón y de entendimiento (dos de las cosas más difíciles que les toca hacer a los seres humanos).

    Good Palme D'Or winner written by Ingmar Bergman based on his parents and how they got together. It's a long film, and the first half is pretty slow, it takes too much time showing how their relationship began. But the acting makes up for the slow parts, especially from Max Von Sydow who makes a small appearance, so I didn't mind so much. The second half is much better when the couple try to settle in and start their life together. I wish there was more story involving the young boy Petrus, those scenes were very interesting and the best moments of the film. The ending is also very good.

    <i>Bille August</i> could have made these TV series in two parts instead of four. I have never seen such long and boring scenes, completely useless. If only I was cutting those scenes. The slowness of this real-life drama takes down the quality of the series very much. <i>Pernilla August</i> did some convincing acting because I wanted to slap her in the face several times, what a selfish bitch she played. And did it good. Unfortunately way too long and therefore not worth more than 2.5 stars. Sorry <i>Ingmar</i>.

    Swedish/English subtitles Bergman...cuts to the bone. Faith, family and failures.

    The script is wonderful, Bergman understands people and their relationships like no one else. It makes characters in other movies seem embarassingly incomplete. Bergman's characters change their minds, have violent outbursts followed by tender moments, feel guilt and doubt and pride and shame, and the words they speak are so right. August's direction is more distant than Bergman's, but he does a fine job, getting great performances from the leads.
