Day of Wrath (Vredens dag)
Featuring Lisbeth Movin
Dir. Carl Dreyer. 1943, 97 mins. 35mm. With Thorkild Roose, Lisbeth Movin. In this masterpiece by Carl Dreyer, set in a seventeenth century Danish village, the young wife of a priest is accused of witchcraft after having an affair with her husband’s son. As Anne, the wife, Lisbeth Movin’s beauty has what James Harvey describes as “an elvish cast more chorus girl than goddess—the kind of prettiness a hostile mother-in-law might be able to think of as ‘trashy.’”
