Possibly Harlan's best movie!
This movie is the best one I ever saw directed by the great Veit Harlan. Starring his faithful wife Kristina Söderbaum as the title heroine this story combines the traditional German "Heimat Film" with ancient and supernatural aspects. Söderbaum gives a strong performance in this tear-jerker and the other characters add much to the dramatic impact of this masterpiece! It's a shame that it's so rarely broadcast on television these days.
