Norway, 1929

Synopsis

A silent epic saga set in Norway’s frozen far north, where a foundling child is rescued and brought up by reindeer herders.

Our take

Sweden has famed greats like Bergman and Sjöström, Denmark has Dreyer, but what of Norway? Norwegian classic cinema remains largely under the radar in the States, but riches lie therein for the adventurous cinephile—first and foremost this epic wilderness drama from the silent era, now restored.
