Beautiful and vibrant
4 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

A truly beautiful movie with many qualities if you like to watch an intense drama based in the 1800's rural Norway. Based upon acclaimed writer and Norwegian national independence hero Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson's novel "The fisher girl" (orig. Fiskerjenten) from 1968, this is a great view of the 1800's Norwegian farming community.

Young and wild flower Petra is driven away from her western Norwegian small town after engaging to marry nothing less than three young men. She runs towards the capitol Kristiania (later renamed today's Oslo), and lies her way into a vicarage with a Danish widowed priest and her daughter, which she befriends. But after a while her lies catches up with her.

The production value is great, the filming of the scenery is breathtaking, and the multi talented star Herborg Kråkevik is perfectly cast as Petra, which seduces and melts every one on screen as well as in the audience. The rest of the cast also performs beautifully.

The director Thomas Robsahm has done a great job with this movie based upon a dated novel, which still is considered Bjørnsons main work, about the wildly charming character Petra... The film received massive critical acclaim and celebration from the press in a successful Norwegian film year.

The film resembles the vibrant "Telegrafisten", based upon the novel "Svermere" by Knut Hamsun. These films will without doubt have a equally satisfied audience.
