Synopsis

Adapted from a play by Johann Sigurjonson, director Victor Sjöström's Berg-Ejvind och Hans Hhustru is considered one of the first major films of Swedish cinema. The 1918 silent drama stars Victor Sjöström as Berg-Eyvind, a drifter who begins working on the farm of a widow named Halla (Edith Erastoff). The couple falls in love only to have it revealed that Berg-Eyvind is a thief on the run after stealing a ship. Together, the lovers escape into the mountains of Iceland where many criminals before them have sought refuge. Released in the United States under the title You and I, Berg-Ejvind och Hans Hhustru was restored in 1966. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi
