Plot & Details
To cash in on the American popularity of Swedish actress Viveca Lindfors in the early 1950s, certain enterprising distributors dug up some of Lindfors' earlier Scandinavian films. Made in Sweden in 1943, Anna Lans was released in the U.S. as The Sin of Anna Lans in 1950. Lindfors plays the title role, a maidservant in a wealthy but dysfunctional household. Anna Lans falls in love with the family's son, who enjoys her sexual favors but refuses to marry her. The heartbroken Anna drifts from one desultory romance to another before finding redemption. Subtlety is not the strong suit of The Sin of Anna Lans, but Viveca Lindfors is good as always.
