Storyline

A dramatizing of Knut Hamsun's famous novel from 1898, Victoria, which is about the tragic and unhappy love affair between Victoria and Johannes. She's a daughter of a rich estate owner, and he is the son of the poor miller. Despite the deep love between them, her father makes Victoria ditch Johannes, and instead marry to the chamber-mans son Otto. Johannes is a writer, and very fond of the nature, but he can never get the girl he loves above all, the wealthy born Victoria. They meet for the first time at age 14, when she is 10. We follow them for years, where we see Johannes making every possible attempt to impress her, and to climb in social rank, at which he does not succeed. They meet up several times, declaring their love for each other, but Victoria is obliged to marry far richer Otto to ensure their parents needed future prosperity. Written by OJT

Hamsun's love story adapted to a movie
14 April 2014 | by oyvindeiSee all my reviews

It is not the easiest task to make Nobel laureate Knut Hamsun's book "Victoria" into a understandable movie for the mass market, but it rather succeeds in doing so. Rather good actors, especially Oftebro jr, and the production is high quality. The book also allows for complex characterization and a deeper understanding of the intricacies of the human dilemma. The story is generally told in a convincing manner, although certain elements always will be lost in adapting a novel. Nonetheless, the intensity of the love story is there, and the movie serves well in giving insight into Norwegian society around the 1890s, class differences and all.

All in all, this is one of the better Norwegian films I have seen in recent years. Reading the novel will add to the experience.
