Ingrid Bergman and the Chicken
28 October 1998 | by Jojo-21See all my reviews

The quintessential Ingrid Bergman movie! Alright, maybe not. But she's great, she's fun, and her 15-minute sequence is hilarious. The story (if I can call it that...) is so so dumb, but what's great is that it gives you the opportunity to watch Ingrid at home running after a chicken and speaking in Italian. It's a gem. Watch it!
