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 and Enduring
18 October 2002 | by 4applesSee all my reviews

I saw the English version of this movie (Gypsy Fury) when I was very young and the impression it had on me was enduring. This movie is sacred. More than anything, the portrayal of the little boy, Sorgbarn, can never be forgotten. I agree completely with the other commenters about the unforgettable qualities and atmosphere of the film. I can also agree that it is very difficult to locate.

Also a matter of conjecture, but the several versions of this film appear to be of differing length, with the French version being the longest. It would be interesting to know in which way they differed.
