The Best of Intentions Short Film

"I'd love to talk a little, we haven't done that very much." Another intriguing and well-made short film to feature this month. The Best of Intentions, also known as Han som ville henne så väl in Swedish, is a Swedish suspense thriller short film directed by actor Emil Jonsson - who also stars in this film. Famous Swedish actor Per Ragnar, seen in Light the Right One In, co-stars as a father of a disabled woman who comes to confront one of the workers at the care home where she lives. It's described as a thriller "in the vein of old Twilight Zone episodes" and definitely has that feel. The two lead performances are outstanding, and the tension building is impressive. It's a thought-provoking thriller cleverly addressing moral dilemmas.

Quite good. I wonder if it could have been a bit better if they decided to have more scenes of just dialogue without the synth track?
