Storyline

After all the drama in "Und Ewig Singen die Wälder", the surviving second son and heir, Dag junior, father of the next heir, lays his father in his grave. The former castle estate steward feared to be thrown out with his retarded son Lorenz, but is offered management again, and a new house for him and Adelheids's old aunt Eleonore Barre, the sister of Dag's now in-living father-in-law, Royal Guards Major Henrik a.D. Barre, who will tend to Bjorndal estate's bookkeeping. Dag is fair for his tenants, while hard for those who try to cheat him, and gives employ to hapless Gunvor, till her husband writes her sprung from jail, so she admits having been charged with the same murder as he; Dag finds and gets rid of her husband who tells him she was unfaithful with the victim, a rich apothecary in the city; paid off to leave for suggesting -perhaps truthfully- her baby is Henriks, showing the treasured ring the major once receives from a royal chamberlain, Gunvor takes revenge by breaking a ...

INFERIOR TO PART 1
24 September 1999 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This sequel to "Und ewig singen die Wälder" is far inferior to part 1. In part 1 one can see that the cast and certainly the director took the thing seriously; for Ucicky thìs film must have been just another of his routine jobs done without much interest (like he did every film in the 50's). The scene that should have been a dramatic moment (a pile of trees in the river is blown up) is very badly managed. Script also not that good; it seems that as much as possible has been put into it which has lead to mediocre storytelling, towards the end things get clumsy. Strictly for the real fans of the Trygve Gulbranssen trilogy; they could regard it as a moving illustration to the book
