A very melancholy study of a woman who values love above all but can't seem to actually live with it. This is another period piece from Dreyer but does not have the impact of his other major films. Dreyer was an old man and only lived several years after this film was completed. This was clearly not the work of a young optimistic man. The actors deliver most of their lines in scenes together at oblique angles, not directly facing one another. This might be psychologically true for these characters but adds another layer of disconnection for the viewer.
