A patient and beautiful love story
19 July 2002 | by ccheatonSee all my reviews

Telegrafisten is one of my favorite movies, and is nearly as charming is the story upon which it is based: The Dreamers, by Hamsun.

Be patient as the story unfolds. A philosophical and rurally romantic story unravels that, in the end, is very rewarding.

I don't know how it holds up dubbed or with subtitles. I've only watched it in its original Norwegian/Swedish.
