Quotes by Philip Horne  (?)

“Ordet is an ensemble piece: it is possible to read different characters as its centre or hero - old Borgen, young Mikkel and Inger all act as focal points. Most haunting of the candidates, perhaps, is the mad Johannes, whom Francois Truffaut described stimulatingly in 1969: 'The film's hero, Johannes, is a visionary who thinks he is Jesus Christ; but only when he comes to recognise his delusion does he 'receive' spiritual power.' It reinforces Ordet's strange challenge to us, when we realise that it is a sane Johannes who seems to be given 'the word that can bring the dead alive' - through the faith of a child.”
