The Magnetist's Fifth Winter

Morten Henriksen, Denmark, 1999

123 min.DK/Feature

Charlatan or healer? Just who is this mysterious stranger, Meisner, who arrives in a northern Swedish town in 1820 where Dr. Selander lives with his blind daughter Maria? Meisner calls himself a magnetist, an amalgam of hypnotist and healer, and claims he can cure diseases which the doctors of the town are unable to treat. Dr. Selander ignores the objections of his colleagues and allows Meisner to attempt to cure Marie. Not only does she regain her sight, but she also falls in love with the charismatic Meisner. However, rumours begin to circulate about Meisner's past, about fraud and rape.
