Denmark / 1955 / Danish / 126 minutes / DCP

Are words enough to praise the Lord… or Dreyer’s transcendent masterpiece, claiming cinematic authenticity through hypnotic grace? Probing the mystery of religion, the legendary Danish master depicts a pious old patriarch challenged in his faith through the problems of his sons and the tragedy of his beloved daughter-in-law. With each measured image and camera movement imbued with an almost godlike quality, this Venice Golden Lion winner offers enduring revelations about the transience of life, love, and, ultimately, belief.
