Storyline

Izabella Scorupco plays Carla, who is a con-artist somewhere in medieval Sweden. Carla is disguised as a man and she is selling a "product" called Petri tårar (Tears of St. Peter). This product cures every sickness. In order to promote her product she promises to wake up from the dead all citizens of the town who have died within the last ten years. Both the bishop and the mayor are alarmed as they fear loss of influence over them and try to work against Carla. There are also many citizens who don't want to see their "loved ones" wake up from the dead. In order to make things more confusing, Carla and the son of the mayor, Mark, fall in love with each other. Written by Blort

St.Peter Wept - A great movie
31 January 2007 | by IckeSee all my reviews

This is a great movie; too great to be lost and forgotten! There may not be so many copies in existence - I missed 2 in auctions and I have one. So I know that there are 3. The scene is a lively medieval town, about 1300 AD, run by the mayor and the bishop. The former for his and the town's advantage, the latter for his and the Church's advantage. An "Italian" conman (Scorupco) vows to raise the last ten year's dead in a weeks time. This dangerous promise is defused by the living for the most part seeing only disadvantage and being willing to pay to avoid this. The mayor is made an accomplice by referring to him the decision and the bribes. The end-game is deft, exiting and intelligent. The young Izabella Scorupco is very good as the Italian conman and very lovely (all of her) as a woman. The supporting cast are excellent Swedish and Finnish professionals. This movie is worth a full DVD treatment - the colors brightened, dubbed in English and French etc and subtitled.
