Day of Wrath


Denmark 1943, 95 minutes, B/W
Dir. Carl Dreyer
In Danish with English subtitles
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama, Classics / Deviltry

Topics: Period - 1600s.


Aroview: Witchcraft drama set in 17th century rural Denmark, where an innocent young woman is denounced following the death of her much older, harshly conservative husband.

Delineated with a slow, claustrophobic immediacy in textured black and white, the wife's slide towards the torture-chamber becomes hard to watch, but dir. Dreyer's artistry prevails.
