| Not a typical movie for its time!
Seen the movie in full-length on TV some hours ago. At first I didn't expect anything special, but in the end I was fascinated by the quality and the emotion that this movie is able to transport. For a movie from 1937/38, the music and direction is outstanding. Extreme camera perspectives, dramatic scenes in high mountain area, combined with an even more dramatic score, are the highlights. The performance given by Luis Trenker (who also directed and wrote screenplay) was simply amazing.
