Elvira Madigan Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Inspired by the famous Johan Lindstrom Saxon ballad, this Swedish film involves circus performer Elvira Madigan ([[Performer~P18283~Pia Degermark~piadegermark]]) and army officer Sixten Sparre ([[Performer~P5635~Thommy Berggren~thommyberggren]]). Sparre breaks loose of the oppressive atmosphere of both the military and his tradition-bound family to conduct a passionate affair with Elvira. Aware only of one another's presence, the lovers refuse to recognize that they have stepped irreversibly on the road to tragedy. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
