Movie Info

This Danish-Swedish-Norwegian film takes place off the coast of Denmark in the mid-18th Century. In 1760, timid 25-year-old pastor Poul (Lars Simonsen) arrives to serve at the rainswept Faroe Islands community of Torshavn where parishioners tell him about the scandalous behavior of young Barbara Christina Sallin (Anneke von der Lippe). Eventually, despite warnings, Poul marries her. When Barbara enters into an affair with a student from Copenhagen, Poul is pressured to prosecute his own wife for the crime of fornication. Shown at the 1998 Berlin Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
