Dir. Carl Dreyer (1955).
Dreyer's penultimate feature, a rural chamber drama, one of his most demanding works, explores the clash between orthodox religion and true faith. It concerns a young farmer who believes that he is Christ, and through a child's faith performs a miracle. Slowly paced, visually stunning, it remains an estimable achievement.
