What is it about?
Music is a narrative device in the film Sonja the White Swan. It helps the viewer to understand Sonja more deeply, in terms of psychological processes rather than as a duplicate of Sonja Henie. The film distances itself from a historiographic narrative and presents a historical famous figure as a modern-day personality.
