Dreyer’s atmospheric film about a young woman’s relationship with her stepson.

Image from Day of Wrath

Denmark 1943
Dir Carl Theodor Dreyer
With Thorkild Roose, Lisbeth Movin, Preben Lerdorff Rye
English subtitles
Certificate PG

Set in 17th-century Denmark, Dreyer’s magisterial film concerns the tender, risky and guilt-laden relationship between the young second wife of an elderly parson – who has sent women to the stake for witchcraft – and her stepson. Sun-dappled rural idylls suggest love, an icy gust of wind on an evening walk, something far darker. Stark, sombre and emotionally very intense.
