The character Krogstad does not appear in the original play. His name is borrowed from a character in Henrik Ibsen's play "A Doll's House", but otherwise he has nothing in common with the character in "Song of Norway". Ibsen wrote the play "Peer Gynt", for which Grieg wrote music in 1876. See more »
Although some of the acting is bland, the movie honestly tells of the struggle of a great musician to be "heard". Postcard cinematography and a good stereo sound add to the ambiance, and the music is so GOOD that one can forgive the lyrics writers for giving words to it, but these are the same people that gave words to the music of Borodin in "Kismet" and we MUST admit that "Stranger in Paradise" HAS become a staple!
