Beautiful treatment of nature
5 March 2002 | by (Zagreb, Croatia) – See all my reviews

'Gunar Hedes saga' is fine example of Mauritz Stiller art and exceptional treatment of nature in Swedish early films, especially by Sjöstrom and Stiller. Snow scenes with reindeers are simply beautiful. I strongly recommend for fans of silent films.
