This four-reel picture of Scandinavian life will strike many as filled with Ibsenesque suggestions. It has a new and deeply human situation, well played by Betty Nansen, who is supported by an intelligent and skillful cast of players, one of whom (the young daughter of the widow) is every whit as vigorous and convincing as the great leading woman herself. It is a picture for thoughtful people, for it is substantial and presents a vivid criticism of life that is authoritative, that is, the author in picturing the tragic ending of a mother's sacrifice for her empty-headed and selfish daughter, shows a first hand and nerve-touched knowledge of the forces that underlie life. It is a big offering for the right audience and for the average audience it will be a good deal better than fair. - The Moving Picture World, July 25, 1914
