The story centers on a family of priests: Johannes, Elisabeth and their sons August and Christian. Johannes is God-like to his sons - he gives, loves, and punishes.

Following the first episode of Herrens Veje, I think it is safe to anticipate an effective drama with both great acting and glimpses into the depth of the soul of man by proxy of the more or less devout family of ministers. The moral fiber we expect them to have makes for a great extreme in understanding our own.
These days where we have 4K television sets and HDR dynamic range, the café-latte-urban-gardener decision to use an Instagramish filter in colour grading is almost unbearable. The colours can be discussed - some like them, some don't. But the dynamics are terrible. At either extreme, luminosity washes out into a greyish smear. Aunt Annie may look cool in her filter-infected selfie but an entire TV series?
