Yasmeen Gaber Profile picture for Yasmeen Gaber

This epic film provides a window into the world of 19th century Scandinavia and its social hierarchy. There are very few moments of emotional/comedic relief and the film is slowly paced, but for those interested in the time period, the characters are compelling and the world is fascinating.
