Predictable melodrama
16 December 2003 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I don't know why a story about a farmer's son with an endless string of love affairs who become a rafter should interest the public but I guess that Svensk Filmindustri (SF) wanted a project that would keep director Gustaf Molander occupied. Melodrama should fit him like a glove after 30 years of directing but the script is simply over the top. The movie is overlong and the one exciting part, the river contest between Olof Koskela and Falk over the attention of Kylikki, the pretty farmer's daughter, should have finished the movie.

The rest of the movie is predictable and anybody can tell what will happen after the establishing shot of the first meeting between the rafters and the farmer's sons as they enter a village.

Anita Björk as Kylikki is doing her best with her part but good acting can not save a script based on a stuffy novel. In two smaller roles, Edvin Adolphson, as Kylikki's father, and Axel Slangus, as the chief rafter, are wonderful.
