It seems the previous commentators have described the background for the film well enough ! So there is no need I add more! The film is very nice, about forbidden love in late 19 th century Norway, and the social conditions in Northern Norway in those times, a in very typical Hamsun setting ! I saw the film at the Norway film festival in Rome,Italy 1995, and I became interested in Norwegian cinema, as a consequence ! I find it unfortunate that the only negative comment of the film is highlighted on the film page , it does injustice to the film, as it deserved to be distributed in the rest of Europe ! Also the total vote seems to be wrong, it should be in the 7 or 8 area, judging from the total votes bar graph , showing a lot of votes in that area........something is not right here !...... as Jimi Hendrix said in his song 'Red House' !!
