danish films in the 1950's: THE DECADE OF MELODRAMA AND FAMILY OF FOUR by Dan Kenneth Gigernes

In the 1950s the melodrama returns with the popular Morten Korch film adaptations and the Father of Four (Far til fire) family films. Another direction pursued in the 50s is problem-oriented films, especially dealing with youth. Outside the trends of the time comes Dreyer’s The Word (Ordet, 1955).
