Carl Th. Dreyer
Filmed during the Nazi occupation of Denmark, Carl Dreyer’s _Day of Wrath_ (_Vredens dag_) is a harrowing account of individual helplessness in the face of growing social repression and paranoia. Anna, the young second wife of a well-respected but much older pastor, falls in love with her stepson when he returns to their small seventeenth-century village. Stepping outside the bounds of the village’s harsh moral code has disastrous results. Exquisitely photographed and passionately acted, _Day of Wrath_ remains an intense, unforgettable experience.
