The film shows the dark sides of a parish
11 December 2000 | by (Storuman, Sweden) – See all my reviews

A Danish teacher moves to a small island in Norway. The island has a dark secret, two schoolgirls who were said to have committed suicide. When a third girl nearly dies of the same reason, the teacher ¨becomes suspicious... Beautiful surroundings in a rather dull film, but an interesting theme with an insane priest in a small parish. Exorcism and fear of sexuality and changes. I liked the film.
