Laila, 1929's epically scaled Norwegian feature comes from Danish-German director and noted cinematographer George Schneevoigt, who brings every exotic corner of on-location Scandinavia to the forefront in a decades-spanning romantic adventure. Mona Mårtenson 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. Recently resurrected by and proudly presented in conjunction with the Norwegian Film Institute, Laila boasts a restored transfer and all-new subtitles as well as a brand new piano score by renowned composer Robert Israel. LAILA has been mastered in this new digital edition in partnership with the National Library of Norway. Included in this publication is a brand new illustrated essay by film historian and University of Copenhagen professor, Casper Tybjerg; an original diary manuscript of actor Tryggve Larssen (Jåmpa in the film) made during the production; the complete digital reproduction of a rare photo album from a private collection covering the production of the film; and biographical information of the principal actors and technicians.
