The woman, forbidden to marry and thereby involve outsiders in the factory ownership, finds herself drawn to the headstrong painter. When they fall in love, the situation throws her entire life into disarray. Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

Exquisitely Subtile
1 April 2001 | by (Hillsboro, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

While not for everyone, this is a wonderful movie about how the individual fits into a social hierarchy. The key is these individuals do _not_ fit into the roles they have been assigned. And not only does the viewer get to watch the unfolding story, but one is treated to cinematography from a non-Hollywood point of view. This is one I would love to see on the big screen. One of my most favourite films.
