Berg-Ejvind och hans hustru

Victor Sjöström Swedia, 1918

Roscoe's rating of the film The Outlaw and His Wife

Grand landscapes and fine performances are very nearly scuttled by an unfortunate tendency to preach its messages rather too straightforwardly. The film's earnest simplicity can get wearisome, as I got frankly sick of Sjostrom's pure wild simple nobility.
