Storyline

In 14th Century Sweden, when Lorld Erland Maneskold marries Singoalla, a gypsy, he abandons his worldly possessions. The gypsies, who meanwhile have stolen the Maneskold treasure, want the couple to join their caravan to escape detection. A jealous suitor makes Erland think Singoalla has betrayed him, and he returns to his castle, where a battle between the gypsies and the landed-gentry ensues. Ten years later, Sorgbarn, the son born to Singoalla from the brief marriage sets out to find his father Erland. He does and tries to bring his parents together. He succeeds briefly, but is hurt in an accident and dies. Erland's mind snaps when Singoalla is killed by a vindictive gypsy and he retires to his castle, demented and alone.

Unforgettable
29 January 2002 | by (Saint Chinian, France) – See all my reviews

I saw this film when I was fifteen and have never forgotten the amosphere, the b+w images of the plague years, and the passionate love between such disparate people. After all these years I still hope to see it again either on tv or on the screen, but my searches for it in London and Paris have been in vain. In my memory it has acquired a magic niche.
