    Max Von Sydow did many theater works with Ingmar Bergman, besides his signature films with Bergman that many of us come to know, the Seventh Seal, The Virgin Spring, Shame, Through the Glass Darkly etc.
    He appeared in “Pelle the Conqueror” and “the Best Intentions” by Bille August. Ingmar Bergman scripted ‘The Best Intentions”, based on his parents’ marriage and Max got to play Ingmar’s grandfather character.
