Storyline

In Northern Norway during the 1860s, a little girl named Dina accidentally causes her mother's death. Overcome with grief, her father refuses to raise her, leaving her in the care of the household servants. Dina grows up wild and unmanageable, with her only friend being the stable boy, Tomas. She summons her mother's ghost and develops a strange fascination with death as well as a passion for living. Family friend Jacob encourages Dina's father to hire Lorch, a tutor who introduces her to the cello. When Dina is old enough, she marries Jacob and moves to Reinsnes, a port he runs with his mother, Karen, and his stepsons Niels and Anders . Niels doesn't like Dina's wild ways, or the fact that she has taken over accounting duties at Reinsnes. Dina's eccentric tendencies become even stronger, eventually leading Jacob into an accident of his own and bringing Tomas back into her life. Written by Anonymous

Awesome movie with the scent of European thinking
12 April 2005 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

I think this is one of the best movies I have ever seen. Images are beautiful and impressive, storyline is interesting and it has a fresh female voice. Not feminist or whatever, just in the spot there is a lady with heart and soul - and also self-conscious. This is not a Hollywood movie, but has th same quality. Sees things from a different angle. Worth to see it. The first part of the movie, when we see the child-Dina is quite shocking, maybe this is the reason why -in some countries - the film is rated. The second part - when we see Dina as an adult - is more like a Gothic story. It reminded me the French movie the Brotherhood of the Wolf. Maria Bonnevie is a really beautiful and talented actress, I hope we can see her in blockbusters, too.
