Set against the beautiful backdrop of northern Norway, this film tells the story of a telegraphist in a very small community at the turn of the century. Bjørn Floberg does an excellent job portraying the main character, looking like he's having a good time. The other actors are also very good. There is a lot of interesting personalities living in this very small township, where a factory producing fish-glue is the only major industry(!). The movie invokes a great feeling for the period, and the cinematography is beautiful. This is a very lyrical story.
