The Vicar of Vejlby

Film

Time Out says

The first Danish talkie is a stern tragedy, from a novel by Steen Steensen Bilcher, about the fall of a pious but intemperate preacher at the hands of his daughter's spurned suitor. The tale unfolds with classical implacability, but the characterisation is thin and the drama ponderous. The iron grip of gravity rules: what is down must stay down. Claus Orsted directed a remake in 1972.
