  1. Log Lady's rating of the film Ingeborg Holm

    Important film in terms of social justice and how it changed Swedish society, but not my favorite Sjöström.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Ingeborg Holm

    Une jeune femme, Ingeborg Holm, heureuse avec son mari et ses enfants, voit son existence basculer à la mort de son époux, décédé de la tuberculose, et le spectre de la misère apparaître ainsi que la possibilité que ses deux mômes soient vendus aux enchères ..... www.cinefiches.com

  3. Nathan Hopkins's rating of the film Ingeborg Holm

    Historically significant, Ingeborg Holm is one of Cinema's earliest attempts to tell a simple story of real life and tragedy. Cinematography, being in its early days, could have benefited some from later innovations, but the film's story does illicit compassion, and its end is paradoxically heartwarming and heartbreaking.

  4. suede's rating of the film Ingeborg Holm

    A 73-min. Swedish variation on Job's story. The long takes kill. Even for utterly dull, visually uninteresting scenes, Sjöström takes a minute or more. The ending impresses, but it takes way too long to get there, in total silence, low-def B/W, and without character development! [MUBI's synopsis is wrong, like the runtime. The family father was of modest means, and he dies before opening the grocery shop.]

  5. Lefteris Becerra's rating of the film Ingeborg Holm

  6. AKFilmFan's rating of the film Ingeborg Holm

    Dull but important social drama with a heroine that goes through more in one movie than Gish does in several.
