Hanna says her hair clip was her morning gift from Ulf. The term "morning gift" derives from the practice of the bridegroom giving his bride a gift on the morning after the wedding night, after the consummation of the marriage and proof of the bride's virginity. Traditionally the dower or morning gift was much bigger than a hair clip. It was usually land or property that could support a wife in the (usual) event that she survived her husband. It was usually given (in trust) to the wife after the wedding. See more »
The criticism this film has received is totally unwarranted. One Swedish critic dubbed it the "turkey of the year", which is unnecessarily cruel and absurd. I have seen many other films that I would consider much worse. This leads me to wonder if the critique is against the movie itself or the people who created it.
Tre Solar has an interesting story line. It revolves around how people react to times of crisis and change. It is looks at religion, class, and gender roles. Set in the middle ages, the lead is a strong female character (Hannah). She rescues her husband and several others, on a journey to reunite her family. The story emphasizes through numerous examples that Hannah is unafraid and willing to do anything it takes, even sacrifice herself, for the ones she loves.
I think this was a very ambitious project. The setting (in the Middle Ages) and movement through the film make it a challenge, not to mention the topics it presents. The film is not as smooth as a big budget film. However it is an interesting story and the southern Swedish landscapes create a beautiful setting.
Anyone who only focuses on the wigs, obviously missed the point of this film.
