Ordet
The cinema we didn’t see in the last decade

Around 1930, in a small town in western Jutland, the old farmer Morten Borgen lives. He has three children: Mikkel, Johannes and Anders. The first is married to Inger, has two young daughters and awaits the birth of his third son. Johannnes is a former student of Theology who, having imbued himself with Kierkegaard's ideas and identifying himself with the figure of Jesus Christ, is considered by all as a madman. The third, Anders, is in love with the tailor's daughter, an uncompromising leader of a rival religious sector. Such circumstance revitalizes the discord that has always existed between the two families, since neither sees with very good eyes that their children marry.

BIOGRAPHY

CARL THEODOR DREYER

Carl Theodor Dreyer (Copenhaguen, 1889-1968) was a Danish film director and is considered as one of the greatest european directors in cinema history. He started working as a journalist, but eventually joined the film industry as a writer of title cards for silent films and subsequently of screenplays. In 1928 he made his first classic film, The Passion of Joan of Arc. His next film, Vampyr (1932) was also a box office failures, and Dreyer did not make another movie until 1943. In 1955, he made Ordet (The Word) based on the play of the same name, which won the Golden Lion at the 1955 Venice Film Festival.
