“a masterpiece, its slow, measured pace and stark visuals achieving an almost unbearable emotional intensity” Time Out
Disastrous results ensue when a young wife steps outside her seventeenth century village’s harsh moral code. A fierce attack on religious intolerance and suffused with Dreyer’s genius.
