Classic Norwegian romantic tale
11 April 2014 | by OJTSee all my reviews

Kristine Valdresdatter is one of the true Norwegian black and white classics, made in 1929, it premiered in 1930 to much acclaim. Director Rasmus Breistein was considered Norways best director at the time, after films like "Fante-Anne" (1920) and "Brudeferden i Hardanger" (1926), which all was fabulous successes. This was even re-released in 1936 in a 19 minutes shorter edited down version. An important film in the Norwegian cultural heritage. A film which very early uses the wonderful Norwegian scenery as a driving force in the movie.

The story is a romantic drama about the English lord Wakefield which every year goes to the picturesque Vang in Valdres in Norway to fish for salmon. one summer he meets young Anne, which works as a farmers girl, and falls head over heels in love with her. It goes as far as the lord impregnates Anne, which next spring gives birth to a child.

We meet the big stage actors Aase Bye and Rasmus Rasmussen in the main roles in a film which is filmed with great techniques and beautiful photography in a scenic landscape. A film for the old romantics.

For fun is worth noting that Lord Wakefield was played by a Norwegian actor, as in silent movies there where no language barriers.
