Review The entire film rests on Per Oscarsson's lead performance - he is in practically every shot of the film - and he completely embodies the main character of Hamsun's book (even though he was second choice for the role)...The list of interesting people who worked on this film is astonishing: Bergman regular Gunnel Lindblom plays the female lead; for art director Erik Aaes (who worked for Renoir, Cavalcanti, Dreyer, etc) it was his last film; regular Polanski collaborator Krzysztof Komeda wrote and performed the haunting score; and Birgitte Federspiel (Inger in Ordet) has a small role as Lindblom's sister.
