The Bride of Glomdal

glomdalsbruden-nb-036

Tore, son of a poor farmer, loves Berit, daughter of a rich one, but she is promised by her father to another man whom she does not love and whom she refuses to marry. Injured in a fall from her horse while running away, and cast out by her father, Berit is cared for by Tore's parents until a reconciliation is effected through the intervention of the parson. So the marriage takes place, but not before Tore, subjected to a revenge plot by his furious rival, has had to make a hazardous crossing of the river on horseback and by swimming the rapids (Excerpt from The Cinema of Carl Dreyer by Tom Milne, published 1971).
