Der var engang [Once Upon a Time] (1922) - Carl Theodor Dreyer




According to the Danish Film Institute, which is responsible for the restoration of this film, approximately only half of the original film remains. At 75 minutes, this restoration includes stills and explanatory title cards to compensate for much of the lost footage. As it is, 'Once Upon a Time' isn't a very good film. Yet, one can see significant improvements in Carl Theodor Dreyer's film-making here.

The film clearly resembles Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Shrew," with the story being about a Danish prince who, much through stratagem, tames a rebellious princess into loving, marrying and obeying him.
