Nice details, but not much otherwise for a modern audience
30 December 2001 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Gunnar Hede is raised by a strict mother, who wants him to become respectable to match his family's wealth. He is more interested in his grandfather, who started as an itinerant violin player, but got rich by leading a herd of wild reindeer south to market. He falls for a violinist working with a married couple of traveling performers and renounces his fortune to go with them. He then tries to earn a fortune by driving reindeer to market, but it doesn't work out and he goes insane. He is finally restored to sanity by the violinist when she returns with the performers.

The most fun part are the couple (Blomgren and Stava), though they only get a few minutes screen time. The shots of the reindeer are interesting, and the shots of Gunnar Hede being dragged through the snow by a reindeer are well done.
