Jan Troell, Denmark, 2008

132 min.DK/Feature

In Sweden in the early 1900s, in a time of social change and poverty, the young working class woman Maria wins a camera in a lottery. The camera enables Maria to see the world through new eyes, but it also becomes a threat to her somewhat alcoholic womanizer of a husband, as it brings the charming photographer Pedersen into her life.
