Storyline

The beginning of the 20th century. Gertrud and Ingmar are in love with each other. While Ingmar is away during the winter, a religious wave spreads in the area. Also Gertrud becomes a follower of the new Christian belief. The new priest is very mesmerizing and he wants his followers to emigrate with him to Palestine. Ingmar's sister decides to follow him and sells the home which has been the family's for centuries. The only way for Ingmar to save it is to marry the daughter of the man who buys it, Barbro. With Ingmar married to another, Gertrud cannot stay and follows the others to Palestine. However, Ingmar does not love Barbro. He is still in love with Gertrud and eventually follows her.

a masterpiece
29 August 2006 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This film is no less than a masterpiece--director Bille August's masterpiece! Selma Lagerlöf's novel described the Jerusalem syndrome 60 years prior to its diagnosis, and Bille August manages to capture the many levels of interior monologue. August takes the audience both to Sweden and the Middle East without painting nauseatingly glossy pictures. Neither does he cross any mines unintentional. The film shows the consequences of religious fanaticism as well as a piece of Scandinavian history. The pietist movements of the early 19th century are brought back to life and even modern, agnostic viewers can begin to understand what power the pietist preachers had among their followers.

Simply wonderful!
