Gösta Berling is a young and attractive minister. Because he is an alcoholic and his preaches are far too daring, he is finally defrocked. He leaves the town in disgrace and arrives at countess Marta's manor. His new job there is to be a tutor to countess' beautiful stepdaughter.

In 2006, the film was released for the first time on DVD by Kino International with the support of the Swedish Film Institute. The new release includes English subtitles, the new music score by Matti Bye, and restoration of the film to a length of 185 minutes. While it is somewhat imposing in length, it really is the only way to see it.

Garbo is a larger than life figure. She has achieved immortality, due in part to roles like this. Though not everyone can name a movie she is in, almost everyone has heard of her. That in itself is quite a feat, considering the great actors of the time who are now forgotten except by the biggest movie nerds.
