Review of Gösta Berlings saga (1924)

Moving picture, 3.0 hours

Review refers to the 130-minute restored Swedish TV version.

Lagerlöf’s plot is a refreshing humanization of the old “deal with the devil” motif, as seen for instance in “Sir Dominick’s Bargain” (1872); Fanu’s story is otherwise quite similar in tone and natural romanticism.
