Never seen any Ibsen or read any and had very little idea what to expect. It was a bit weird but definitely captivated me (have an extra half star). It is odd to think of Ibsen writing this in Norway so long ago - before my grandfather was born as it is so different to anything else I have read from that time. I don't think I buy into the symbolism that the description on the cassette box claims - seems more of a psychological exercise to me. And beautifully performed. I think if I got the chance I might go and see an Ibsen play in the theatre.
