Product Description:

DAY OF WRATH: Dreyer's horrifying masterpiece based on Hans Wiers Jenssen's play which, in turn, was based on actual records of witch trials during the 1600s. An old woman curses the local clergyman and his family as she is burned at the stake in this sobering and ghastly study of religious fanaticism. ORDET: Based on the play by Kaj Munk, this is the story of a man who is ridiculed for believing he is Christ until his miracles heal two families of different faiths angry at each other over a love affair between their children. A classic contrast of institutional religion vs. a personal interpretation of faith. AKA "The Word." GERTRUD: Adapted from Hjalmar Soderberg's 1919 play of the same title, GERTRUD tells the tale of a woman's search for idealized love and spiritual fulfillment, which takes her beyond the confines of a passionless marriage through a series of affairs that tragically fail to live up to her expectations. Employing restrained direction, stark set design, and long, contemplative shots, Dreyer's swan song is a beautiful, meditative and haunting masterwork. Winner: Venice Film Festival, FIPRESCI Award, 1965. CARL Th. DREYER - MY METIER: Through interviews, film clips and other materials, a survey of the life and work of one of Denmark's most brilliant artists.
