Directed by Liv Ullman
Liv Ullmann (working with fellow Bergman veteran, cinematographer Sven Nykvist) tackles
Sigrid Undset's novel of a forbidden love affair in medieval Norway. The daughter of a
wealthy landowner encounters a world of violent emotions inspired by her beauty. Seeking
refuge in a convent, she meets the knight she will fall in love with and begins an affair
that challenges the social status quo. "Ullmann emerges as a significant filmmaker in
her own right" (Boston Herald). Norwegian with English subtitles.
