The other review shows what happens when literature is assigned in class.
I saw this film in a Hamsun retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and in this context it seemed reasonable, charming, atmospheric and well-photographed. Maybe even delightful. And I've been to this part of Norway, and enjoyed that, too.
Sure glad no one forced me to watch this film in school. This way I really enjoyed it. I wish it were available on DVD in the US.
