Description

Master of the House (Criterion Collection) on DVD

Before he got up close and personal with Joan of Arc, the Danish cinema genius Carl Theodor Dreyer (VAMPYR) fashioned this finely detailed, ahead-of-it's-time examination of domestic life. In this heartfelt story of a housewife who, with the help of a wily nanny, turns the tables on her tyrannical husband, Dreyer finds lightness and humor; it's a deft comedy of revenge that was an enormous box-office success and is considered an early example of feminism on-screen. Constructed with the director's customary meticulousness and stirring sense of justice, MASTER OF THE HOUSE is a jewel of silent cinema.
