The ballad of Linda

89 min.DK/Feature

A period meodrama with touches of local Danish Wild West: in 1912, construction workers are putting down railroad tracks in a remote territory. They are disdained by the local folks, but Handsome Thorvald, their foreman, catches the fancy of Linda, the miller's young wife. The miller, a drunk and a brute, beats up Linda, then has a fit and dies. There is more violence but also a happy ending.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
