  • A lighthearted departure from Dreyer's more well-known films such as THE PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC and VAMPYR, THE PARSON'S WIDOW is a silent comedy that follows the romance of Sofren, who is studying to be a parson, his lovely amour Mari. Mari's father won't allow the couple to marry until Sofren has his own ministry, which he hastens to do; once installed in his parish, however, he learns of a troubling local custom that allows the widow of the former parson to marry his successor. The widow Margarete, who is so aged that she has already buried three husbands, exercises her right to a fourth, but Sofren brings Mari with him anyway, calling her his sister. When it begins to seem as though the old lady will never expire, the young lovebirds begin a series of humorous exploits to hasten the process. This release also boasts two rare Dreyer shorts: THEY CAUGHT THE FERRY is a horror fantasy about driver safety in the vein of VAMPYR, and THORVALDSEN is Dreyer's exploration of the sculptor's life and work.
