Plot: Carl Theodor Dreyer directed this austere and beautiful tragedy, set in 16th century Denmark.

A pastor presides over a trial for witchcraft, ultimately finding the accused guilty. He sentences her to death at the stake, but as she burns, the elderly woman screams out curses and accusations. Most damningly, she claims he spared another sorceress out of love for her daughter, Anne -- who has since become the pastor's wife.

Her words remain in the cleric's mind, haunting him endlessly. And soon it seems as if the curses will come to pass, too, for Anne has begun a romance with her stepson... an affair that will have dire consequences for them all.
