Film: The Juniper Tree (1990)

A moving Icelandic movie about witches and ghosts in the medieval era. Based on a tale by the Brothers Grimm, it was one of Björk's first major acting roles. It is the story of the two daughters of a witch who flee across medieval Iceland when their mother is burned at the stake. The elder daughter casts a spell on a handsome widower, but the ghost of the man's mother attempts to prevent the ill-starred romance.
