The tragedy of being Anna-Liisa

Anna-Liisa carries a secret.Three years ago she has killed her baby she had with Mikko, the old hired hand of Kortesuo (Einar Rinne).Now she's marrying Johannes (Emil Autere), when suddenly Mikko comes back.There's a danger the secret will come out.The quilt Anna-Liisa's bearing is overwhelming.Would it be better if they knew? Teuvo Puro and Jussi Snellman are the directors of Anna-Liisa (1922).It's based on the play of the fantastic Minna Canth, whose texts represented realism at very best.Helmi Lindelöf is brilliant as the main character.The other members of Anna-Liisa's family are played by Hemmo Kallio, Meri Roini and Greta Waahtera.Mimmi Lähteenoja plays Husso.All excellent performers.The dramatic elements of this silent movie are touching.The baby's murder and the quilt of a young woman that this movie and the original play tell about is a topic relevant in this day also.Times change but themes always remain the same.
