LAILA (1929) (DVD)

This fantastically scaled Norwegian feature comes from Danish-German director and noted cinematographer George SchnÊevoigt, who brings every exotic corner of on-location Scandinavia to the forefront in a decade-spanning romantic adventure. Mona Martenson is Laila, a young girl separated from her parents as a baby and raised by a wealthy reindeer owner Aslag (Peter Malberg) in the frozen tundra.

Though she is returned a year later, Laila grows into a young woman of two worlds, at home with both her settled and nomadic upbringings. Laila soon finds herself in a love triangle with her foster brother Mellet (Henry Gleditsch) and her cousin Anders (Harald Schwenzen), played out against the backdrop of an encroaching plague. Expertly photographed with a shockingly modern cinematic flair, Laila goes from snowy mountain-tops to lush green valleys, featuring treacherous waterfalls, packs of rampaging wolves and reindeer-pulled sled chases.

Recently resurrected by and proudly presented in conjunction with the Norwegian Film Institute, Laila boasts a restored transfer and all-new subtitles as well as a brand new theater organ score by renowned composer Robert Israel. Original diary manuscript of actor Tryggve Larssen (Jampa in the film) made during the production of Laila; brand new illustrated essay by film historian Casper Tybjerg; rare photo galleries and more.
