PLOT
Karl Dreyer’s 1955 simple and dramatic study on the ability of Christianity to heal and destroy lives was the second film adaptation of Kaj Munk’s infamous play. But this version – the word ‘remake’ doesn’t apply – becomes another in Dreyer’s career-long survey on faith , as tragedies befall a small community of farmers. “Form me”, Iñárritu says, “it was like seeing the first miracle in cinema. It was a metaphysical experience – like seeing the resurrection”.
