Handsomely Made Nonsense, 11 January 2017
Author: Richard Chatten from Crystal Palace

A handsome looking but overlong drama stylishly directed by the great Benjamin Christensen and immaculately photographed by cameraman Johan Ankerstjerne, with whom Christensen later collaborated on his celebrated semi-documentary on witchcraft, 'Haxan' (1922). The action of 'Hævnens Nat' spans 15 years; there's an awful lot going on and the film meanders somewhat before eventually arriving at a superbly lit but preposterous climax in the large elegant house designed by Hjalmar Klæbel in which women get pounced upon, doors broken down, and so on. The hammiest performance in the film is ironically by Christensen himself as the hard done-by 'Strong Henry'.
