Storyline

Erik Eriksen, who has become a successful pianist in New York, is back in Templeton, his Mormon community, where he is still treated distrustfully by its members, including his family, for having 'betrayed' them in not living the life God had planned for him. Only his mother and his younger brother Jens, support him unconditionally. Erik falls in love with Chelnica, a beautiful young woman who plays the piano at the local cinema and a dedicated Mormon. The big trouble is that she is also Jens's fiancée, due to marry him soon... Written by Guy Bellinger

Tragedy
16 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

Many people will consider this movie esthetically old-fashioned, and they are pretty right to do so; even the acting seems to be from a film of the 50s or 60s, not from a contemporary work. But there is something in the very, very simple construction of the plot that remains moving, still when considers the anachronistic schematism: tradition vs. experiment, home-sweet-home vs. great world, tenderness vs. passion, field work vs. art, etc. - The point is that this story is still tragic. Although very improbable that it could happen, just as this simple, nowadays, as a "model" it preserves certain strength. 6 out of 10.
