Dunungen Directed by Ivan Hedqvist

What are people saying?

  • Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film Dunungen

    Baker's daughter is wooed by mayor's son, he takes her to visit rich uncle whose wealth he covets, she comes to see what a shallow fool he is and falls for unc. Has some fine touches, but overall rather anonymous, with the cards stacked too heavily against the nephew and a too swift & neat resolution. I've concluded by now that the brief glory of Swedish silent cinema was almost entirely Sjöström and Stiller's doing.
