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

He's to be called Jacob of course?
No, he's not. He's to be called Benjamin.
Benjamin? Nobody in our family has ever been called "Benjamin".
You can brawl all you like, it will be as I say.

I'm obsessed with this film. I've never seen it's equivalent in terms of sheer emotional intensity and the power of the acting,plot, scenery, everything. I'm very frustrated, because since I saw it at the Montreal film festival 2 or 3 years ago, I can find no trace of it in the USA. No DVD's, no local releases that I can find. I want to share this with all my friends. I particularly relate to Dina's fear of loss and abandonment, which fuels her frequent violent outbursts and influences all of her relationships. And her lover's final reassurance that he will leave her, but he will always come back to her. The only character (other than her tutor) who seemed able to both love and understand her, and who could potentially show her a way out of her tortured past. Her tutor's final letter to her was such a message of hope and love. I can't say enough about this film, I don't have the words. This film
