  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Parson's Widow

    Drôle, sarcastique, émouvant, une oeuvre d'une grande philosophie humaine... www.cinefiches.com

  2. Brotherdeacon's rating of the film The Parson's Widow

  3. Diderot's rating of the film The Parson's Widow

    A very amusing, sweet, and lovely film.

  4. Dale Wittig's rating of the film The Parson's Widow

    A bizarre folk tale concerning an odd village custom where a young pastor with a fiance is forced to marry his predecessor's old widow. It is strangely funny and truly sad, with moments full of exuberance in the open air and sunshine and others plunged in wondrously gray shadows full of hidden depths. It was only his second film as director, but already through its subtly shifting tones one sees a master at work.

  5. Karthik's rating of the film The Parson's Widow

    Sentimental education as an eternal return. What a beautiful early masterpiece by Dreyer filled with the intimate patterns of domestic movements and intimately observed societal rites of passage.

  6. kartina obskura's rating of the film The Parson's Widow

    i loved that moment of connected spoons for the wedding cake!

  7. nein's rating of the film The Parson's Widow

  8. Roscoe's rating of the film The Parson's Widow

    Don't be fooled by that dour cover picture. This is no exercise in Solemn Swedish Preaching. This is a fine film of great warmth and humanity, its emotional power coming from fine understated performances and filmmaking. It should be far better known than it is.

  9. TFCHooligan69's rating of the film The Parson's Widow

    An intriguing work. One of Dreyer's earliest.

  10. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Parson's Widow

    Una comedia que iba por buen camino, hasta que a Dreyer se le sale su lado aleccionador-espiritual, en esta ocasión usado de manera plana, con ejemplos o recursos ordinarios.

  11. εξώτερο Διάστημα's rating of the film The Parson's Widow

  12. Matt Kilgore's rating of the film The Parson's Widow

    A somewhat strange plot line, which makes this piece of work all that more fascinating. Incredibly engaging and funny for such an early work. It keeps you entranced for the entirety of its fairly short running time. Enjoyed this one right before they removed it from netflix watch instantly.
