- Synopsis / Plot
- The Lady of Hamre, translates beautifully into a sun-drenched, idyll and fiery drama. Set in the late nineteenth century, long before women's liberation, it is the visually bold and stylized portrayal of a woman's life and fate as the heiress to the family farm. Bente makes a promise to her father, on his deathbed, to marry a neighbor's son and to carry on the family farm. Unfortunately for Bente, her husband, Gorme, is loutish and cruel and tries to take over the farm on his own terms. What Gorme hasn't taken into account, however, is that Bente has an inner strength -- inherently honest and good -- that even he may have trouble matching.
