Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The English-language title of this Swedish wartime drama is Soldiers Reminder. Elof Jahrle stars as Jocke, a young conscript trying to make the best of things in the turbulent year of 1940. Jocke's duty to his country makes almost as many demands on his time than his duty to his true love, well played by Harriet Philipsson. The film was adapted by Herbert Grevenius from his own play, which was one of the major hits of the 1945-46 Swedish theatrical season. Thus the film version of Krigama Erluran had a built-in following even before the turning of the first camera.
