A wonderful story by Knut Hamsun, set in a small coastal community in northern Norway.
The people are a bit rough, but among the hardship of every-day life and the pragmatism and cynicism of the powerful are the strong emotions and tender warmth of the not-so-powerful. And hopes and dreams. And surprises.
I feel sorry for the earlier reviewer who was forced to watch this movie in class. It's an important movie, and it is also very fun and quite full of energy and spirit, but anything can be a pain if you have to do it against your will. I would recommend trying this movie again when you are older and have the time. You will enjoy this movie once you start to appreciate the intricacies of adult life. That's a promise!
