I adore all of the films by Dreyer I had collected up until this release but was yet to see Master Of The House, Ordet and Gertrud. Upon doing so I can truthfully declare that I adore all of his work. Ordet, in particular, was a revelation and is now one of my favourite films of all time, along with Dreyer’s The Passion Of Joan Of Arc, among others. Everything about it was beautifully made. The performances by all the cast, the screenplay, art direction, production design, the mood, and lighting. The emotion I felt upon witnessing the climax was overwhelming, akin to a religious experience, which in light of the film’s story is maybe not all that surprising, but I found it highly impressive.
I am yet to indulge in all of the wealth of extras included, but if they are even half the quality of what I have already been privy to, I will be more than satisfied.
A fantastic release by the BFI, and one that I am eternally grateful for having in my possession.
I was then lured into getting The Passion of Joan of Arc, partly because of its reputation, partly due my response to Vampyre, and partly because one of my favourite guitarists, Loren Connors plays on the soundtrack - this film is a tour de force , and the guitar soundtrack works well, there is an optional piano soundtrack as well, which is less successful in my opinion.
I then picked up this box. All the films are very strong so I will not go into details. I suppose the only quibble I have is that the modern piano soundtrack to the silent movie Master of the House, is not to my taste - no problem! I turned the sound off.
Dreyer may not be to everyones taste, some will think his films too austere, but he is certainly to my taste.
This is limited edition set - I advise you not to miss it. Some of cinema's greatest moments!
