Summary This fantastically scaled Norwegian feature comes from Danish-German director and noted cinematographer George Schnéevoigt, 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. Directed by George Schnéevoigt
