I believe the Danish translation is "Thou Shalt Honour Thy Wife".

If you are interested in the history of cinema, watch the film.

If your forebears' "old country" was in northern Europe and you are intrigued about how they might have lived, watch the film.

If you are interested in the issue of women's rights, the distribution of household labour, and even domestic abuse, watch the film.

In many ways, you can still relate to the main characters and the plot line. The resolution of the central conflict is a bit sappy, but not entirely dubious... the silent film acting is actually pretty good. I love the kids and the old nanny with her severe looks.

The film's settings are interesting, as they are now historical.

I really enjoyed spending a quiet evening with this cinematic gem.

We found this a low-key but highly watchable film that realized a very particular situation and interior location with great detail. Acting was all excellent. We would agree with the view that this is one of Dreyer's best films -- thanks to the library system for acquiring it!

made in 1925 - very realistic and quite humorous - several laugh out loud moments. great facial expressions. I have enjoyed all of the Dreyer films available in my library.
