By all rights, this film should be lost. It's not a bad film, but it's mediocre to the extreme. A rare movie that ends up as being both confusing and predictable simultaneously. But it exists still because it was Ingrid Bergman's first speaking role in a film. And, well, she's great. She's much chubbier here than she was in later films, but as attractive as ever. She won a Best Newcomer award for the role in Sweden - deservedly. There is a nice musical number, which is reprised by Bergman later in the film. Also, the cinematography is very nice. Sweden developed that art quite nicely in the silent era, and the photography here is far nicer than is necessary. Other than that, though, the film is nothing special.
