- Synopsis / Plot
- Landsbykirken [The Village Church] is a documentary on the 800 year old Danish village churches. Landsbykirken was made as an educational movie. It was therefore constructed to be very pedagogical so it looks a little formalistic.
The movie starts out with a short introduction to the Danish village churches. Then comes a series of scenes showing the evolution of the village churches and their use during the ages. The series comes to an end together with the movie when the present day  is reached. Some scenes also contain shabby "historical" reenactments of the use of the churches. The costumes for some of these masquerades were also used in Dreyer's earlier feature film "Vredens Dag" [Day of Wrath]. There is one Swedish wooden church in the movie, but the rest of the shown churches are from locations in Denmark.
