It's a fine little movie about a love story between Johan and Marit. They live together for a while, but when a stranger intervenes, Marit falls in love with him. Johan takes Marit away from the stranger, but when the stranger hears about this, he starts following Johan and Marit. When the stranger finds out where they are, he goes looking for them. He finds Marit, but then Johan hears about this relationship. Johan and the stranger start to fight, and Johan loses. Marit runs off with the stranger, and Johan is left alone. It's a sad story, with very good acting (at least I think it's good) and a beautiful setting (I don't know where the movie was shot, I think it's somewhere in Sweden). Sometimes the acting is truly funny (especially Johan's mother). But overall, it's a nice experience. 5 out of 5.
