In this mid-century masterpiece by one of the most influential directors in the history of cinema, Carl Theodor Dreyer offers a transcendent portrait of a farmer’s family being torn apart by faith, sanctity, and love. Challenging simple facts and dogmatic orthodoxy, Dreyer’s visionary filmmaking layers multiple stories of faith and rebellion, quietly building to a shattering, miraculous climax that feels both immediate and eternal.
