Etter kort tid har han taket på Krøger, men fullfører ikke hevnen utover å si sin hjertens mening om samfunnet og byen.Written by
This film is very pleasant to watch. It features Alfred Maurstad, probably the first leading man in Norwegian sound film. Tørres Snørtevold is the story of how a poor farmer is thrown out of his home by the landlord. The farmer's son then sets out to become rich and to get his revenge on the man who threw him and his father into the street. He meets a number of fascinating characters as he climbs the social ladder, and all of them are well acted. The film is a comedy version of the novel "Jacob" by Alexander Kielland, one of Norway's major writers.
This is a very nice little film, and i would recommend it if you can get a subtitled version. As of 2010, however, the film has not been released on DVD in Norway.
