Carl Theodor Dreyer Vredens Dag (Day of Wrath) 1943, 35mm, 97 min in Danish a German synopsis available

In a Danish village in the early 1600s, a young woman named Anne (Lisbeth Movin), whose mother was thought to be a witch, develops sympathy toward an old woman, Marte, who is accused of witchcraft. The intervention of Anne's older but kindly husband, Pastor Absalon (Thorkild Roose) saved her mother -- but now, urged on by his overbearing mother, he refuses to help Marte. When Absalon's son returns home and is attracted to Anne, it's a matter of time before her family destiny catches up with her.
