Working with legendary Norwegian director Arne Skouen, Liv Ullmann is outstanding in the title role in this adaptation of Johan Falkberget’s 17th-century-set novel series. Born out of trauma, but unwilling to be defined by it, An-Magritt is a hard-working survivor who defies the expectations of her gender and social class. Sven Nykvist’s honest cinematography magnificently captures the hardscrabble of early industrial rural life.
