The power of music
15 July 2001 | by bchil103See all my reviews

This movie is based upon a prizewinning novel by the Swedish author Margit Söderholm and was elected 'film of the year' 1946 in Sweden. It tells the story about the impossible love between the poor folkmusician Jon and Marit, the only daughter of a rich farmer. It all sounds like something we have heard and seen before and it certainly is. But as we know, things can be done in different ways and it also goes for movies. Due to first class direction, excellent and convincing performance by the actors, the magnificent music, and beautiful pictures from the Hälsingland county in Sweden, this film becomes a little masterpiece. I've seen quite a lot of this type of movies and this one could easily be compared with Ophüls' "Liebelei". I give it a 9 and recommend it strongly.
