Bergman is a fisherman's daughter who becomes the desire of minister Lindgren. The minister, who is not a true believer, seduces the young woman. Upset at what he has done, Lindgren rushes out into a storm and is struck by lightning, causing him to become an amnesiac. He is taken away to a

hospital and Bergman discovers that she is pregnant. She has the child and refuses to give the name of the father. When Lindgren returns, he admits in a sermon that the child is his and trades in his collar for a farmer's pitchfork. Released in Sweden in 1935, OCEAN BREAKERS was distributed 12

years later in the U.S. under the title THE SURF. The film is most notable for the presence of Bergman, fresh from the boards of Stockholm's Royal Dramatic Theater School, making one of her first screen appearances. Her captivating but unpolished performance is a harbinger of greater things to

come. (In Swedish; English subtitles.)
