OrdetPG

Dir. Carl Theodor Dreyer | Denmark | 1955 | 2h 5m | Danish/subs. | Starring Kirsten Andreasen, Sylvia Eckhausen, Hanne Agesen, Birgitte Federspiel

Based on a 1932 play by Kaj Munk, Carl Theodor Dreyer’s enigmatic parable on the power of faith focuses on a devout parson and his three sons living in a remote part of Jutland during the 1920s. Religious intolerance and family tensions lie at the heart of this beautifully shot masterpiece, exploring the limits of organised religion and the division between holiness and worldliness.

Reviews

‘A gripping and eerie tragedy of the supernatural…A film with a hypnotic, irresistible stare.’ ★★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Plan your visit

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
