Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The title of this Swedish romantic drama translates as When the Rain is Falling; it was released in the US as Sunshine Follows Rain and in England as When the Rain Follows the Dew. Director Gustav Edgren adapted the screenplay from the bestselling novel by Margit Soederholm. Set in rural Sweden, the plot is a simple one, concerning the romance between a farm girl and an itinerant fiddler. The story is sentimental in the extreme, but handled with taste and class by a superb cast. Helping to "sell" the film in the US was the presence in the cast of up-and-coming film favorites Alf Kjellin and Mai Zetterling, who'd previously been teamed in Alf Sjoberg's Torment (1944).
