Storyline

Orvar is a vagabond, walking the country roads and living on sunshine and generosity. One day he decides to find work somewhere to get some money. He becomes a helping hand for seven lumberjack brothers. The big and strong brothers really enjoy themselves, joking with the small and meek Orvar. Orvar does not know that he has inherited a large fortune but the seven brothers do and they begin to treat him with the greatest courtesy. They convince him to write his last will, making them his heirs, and then begin to make plans on how to kill him... Written by Mattias Thuresson

A personal favorite of both Bergman and Chaplin.
20 January 2001 | by pontus-13See all my reviews

Nils Poppe's brilliant, timeless tragic comedy. Regarded by Ingmar Bergman as one of thirty best Swedish films ever made (Poppe starred a decade later as Jof in The Seventh Seal).

It's rumoured that this was one of the few films enjoyed by Charlie Chaplin.

10/10
