Trivia

The film was originally released as two parts in Sweden: "Gösta Berlings saga I" on 10 March 1924 and "Gösta Berlings saga II" seven days later. The two-part version was also used in Finland and Norway, but for the rest of the world a shorter, one-part export version was made. See more »

Ordinary silent epic.
4 August 2008 | by (Denver, CO) – See all my reviews

Decent but overlong (3+ hours), overblown (*cries*) and over-the-top melodrama even compared to most silent drama; I've never been a huge Garbo fan (she had zero subtlety, which suits a silent actor) and she is right at home here considering everyone else is just as GRAHND *throws arms out*. There's drunk preachers, big speeches, fires, redemption, death, love, everything you would expect from these types of film, in overabundance. The Saga of Gosta Berling's print is remarkably cleaned up, I just wish the film they had put so much work into was better.

{Grade: 6.25/10 (high C+) / #6 (of 6) of 1924}
