Storyline

Young vicar Mr. Paul arrives at the Faroe Islands to take up a benefice, and meets the young Barbara, twice married to vicars, and with both husbands laid cold in the grave. Despite the warnings of the surrounding community and his own religious scruples, he falls victim to Barbara's at once innocent and sinful charm. The appearance of the charming and gallant Andreas Heide in Thorshavn puts their love to the severest of tests. Written by L.H. Wong <lhw@sfs.org.sg>

This film is like a bad stage-play! It isn't cinematic at all and the plot is stiff and uninteresting. A bad case of adapting a novel and not being able to make it into a worthwhile film. The scenery, though, is nice to look at.
