Another film from the 1940's that remembers the turn of the century--in this case, after all the characters have grown old, they look back on their lives. Lydia, a headstrong girl, is wooed by a number of men, but there are always complications. Finally she meets a man who sweeps her away, but problems arise once again. What makes this film lovely is its recreation of another time, with its breathtaking winter scenes and evocative plays on memory. And Joseph Cotten and Merle Oberon are excellent, among others.
