Movie Info

A young woman named Laila (Mona Martenson) finds herself torn between two worlds after being separated from her mother and father as an infant, and brought up in the frigid Tundra by a benevolent reindeer owner named Aslag (Peter Malberg). Shortly thereafter, Laila is reunited with her nomadic parents. As a devastating plague sweeps through the countryside, the ethereal girl must choose between the love of her cousin Anders (Harald Schwenzen) and her foster brother Mellet (Henry Gleditsch).

... there is an elemental power from the film's location shooting in the mountains of Norway.

Audience Reviews for Laila


set in northernmost norway, this is a jaw dropping silent film of stunning landscapes and fascinating insight on traditional sami culture as well as a thrilling tale well told. a little melodramatic in the third hour but at that point i just didn't care. strong performances by all and the lead actress is a wonder. it would be nice if someone could add this cute poster :D Image and video hosting by TinyPic
