Bergman adapts an old swedish tale for screen and builds a terrible story. Terrible because is told in a very personal way. Bergman was a man always trying to pursuit goodness trough suffering and pain, and this movie is exactly that. Is how things are. How sometimes a perfect, beautiful inspiring girl (remove girl and add whatever you want) is destroyed for the greatest and most powerfull enemy of all: hate. This movie really depresses me, but, at the same time, I can't ignore the beauty of it. It's a movie that can't be ignored. It might be better than Seventh seal.
