Storyline

A fisher lad and his lass are seen walking along the beach washed by the incoming tide. They have quarreled, as lovers sometimes do, and to give force to her decision to end everything between them, the willful maiden takes the engagement ring from her finger, and throws it into the sea. Arriving home, the girl is visited by a once-rejected suitor to her hand, who notices the absence of the engagement ring, and is inspired with fresh hope. The young lady is meanwhile racked with remorse, and is love-sick. The rival, meanwhile, goes fishing, and amongst his catch is a fine piscatorial specimen, inside the mouth of which he finds the ring. At the village tavern he plays cards, and wins from the rejected lover the emblem of his troth, given him by the girl. He now has two rings, much to the chagrin of the other man, who follows him when on a fishing expedition, determined to get the ring back.

One or two very interesting typical Danish characters
27 March 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The photography of the sea pictures on this film is too poor to show faces clearly. The scenes in the heroine's home are very artistic and clear. This is well, for the Danish costumes and characters are unusually interesting, and the room as well with its furnishings and decorations. In one scene in this picture a fisherman finds a ring in a fish's mouth, a miracle, of course. The story is not as clear as it might have been. There are two rings in the story, one given by the girl to her lover, and one his gift to her. This one is thrown into the sea, and another man, who loves the girl, finds it in a fish. The first lover now loses a ring at cards; but this reviewer had to read the film maker's synopsis before he knew that the girl had given the man that ring. In trying to get these rings back, the first lover loses his life. The scene in the police court during the examination into this man's death shows one or two very interesting typical Danish characters. - The Moving Picture World, August 12, 1911
