Here's Your Life


He was a decent man.

He was good at arithmetic and could

solve the most difficult problems.

And he was fair. That he was.

I'll give you some money.

No, thanks.

-How old are you?

-Have you got a job?

-Yes, at a sawmill.

-How many are you in your family?

-Four, including myself.

But I don't live there.

I haven't been home for a year.

It didn't turn out that way.

You're a foster child.

Yes, I remember now.

-It's good people. They're kind.


If things should turn out

like that...

You could give it

to your younger brother.

Thank you,

but as I said I have a job.

Yes, they're raising the wages now,

so we'll be better off.

Their damn war!

Anyway, how much

do you get per hour?

-20 re.


I've worked for less.

When we built the railway,

and long before that.

No, we didn't make any great profits.

Now others have to do the work.

You should apply for the railway

when you're old enough.

It's a different life.

It's a completely different tempo.

Your father would smoke a cigar

from time to time.

Like a big boss

with a cigar in his mouth.

It wasn't vanity.

No, he wasn't like that.

I mean, he didn't look vain.

He didn't like snuff.

But he did take it.

Both in the nose and mouth.

But all of a sudden

he would put a cigar in his mouth.

Then he walked around

with a fancy scent.

Your father...

I remember, once...

We had some happy days.

And some not so happy days.


Take care of yourself.

It looks like there's

more snow coming.

My name is Smlands-Pelle.

You don't have to

leave tonight, do you?

I have to be there. Otherwise,

I have to walk tomorrow morning.

I'll get some clothes

and some food for you.

Take care of your eyes.

If there's vermin, wash yourself

and change your clothes.
