Ordet is a difficult film to enter,’ said the great film critic Roger Ebert, ‘But once you’re inside, it is impossible to escape.’ This is a small story of two families in rural 1920s Denmark, whose lives are dominated by religion. Slowly and patiently establishing the characters and their differing views, Carl Theodor Dreyer’s technically masterful film gradually builds to one of the most powerful final sequences in cinema history. Ordet was a key influence on Paul Schrader’s 2018 film First Reformed, and offers an unparalleled cinematic exploration of the challenge of faith.
