30 hand picked films. A new one every day
Douglas Sirk directs this melodrama, adapted from a novel by Selma Lagerlöf, about a young farmer torn between his bride-to-be and a new maid his family his hired.
Second movie of the emperor of melodramas. It's apolitical but the emphasis put on land working and class affiliations reminds us of the artistic constraints of this peculiar period. Recommended.
