Storyline

"Broder Gabrielsen" vekket i sin tid meget stor debatt, og allerede under innspillingen av filmen gikk bølgene høyt i pressen. Filmen retter en sterk advarsel mot religiøs fanatisme og mot samtidens vekkeslsespredikanter, og den møtte da også sterk motbør fra enkelte av disse. I filmen møter vi den nokså ubetydelige legpredikanten, Broder Gabrielsen (Alf Malland), som oppdager hvordan moderne musikk, rytmer og ekstase gir stor suksess når det gjelder å få tilhørerne til sin forkynnelse. Han får snart sitt store gjennombrudd, og holder ekstatiske vekkelsesmøter med tungetale og "helbredelser" ved hjelp av bønn. Det ender i mismot og nederlag da undrene uteblir for Gabrielsen, og personlig tragedier for de som har latt seg lede. Written by Ørnås

Oh my God
9 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

This film created a huge debate in tiny little Norway back in 1966 Today it's just way out of date, providing nothing more than unintentional laughs. The acting is like many other Norwegian movies at the time over-dramatic, and theatrical. The story about a preacher who sees himself as Gods healing messenger, has a basic political good idea, but falls into pieces during the movie. It's just to old to engage today, and back then to naive, but then again maybe we all were naive at that time. This is Richard Pearce's Leap of Faith, in the reverse, providing about the same amount of laughs, at the wrong places. If Pearce was forced to make a deeply serious version of his comedy, it would look like this.
