''Ordet'' is a 1955 Danish film directed by Creator/CarlTheodorDreyer.

It centers on two families in rural Denmark in 1925. The Borgens run their own farm. Patriarch Morten Borgen has three sons: Mikkel, who is married to the gentle Inger; Johannes, a former divinity student who has lost his mind and believes himself to be Jesus; and Anders, the youngest son who still lives at home. The Borgens practice a rather standard mainstream Christianity, although Mikkel has mostly lost his faith in God. Inger is heavily pregnant, and the family is hoping for a boy.

The other family in the story is the Petersens. Peter Petersen is a tailor. Peter's daughter Anne is in love with Anders and the young people wish to marry. Morten doesn't like the pairing but is outraged when he finds out that Peter has already rejected Anders as a match for his daughter. Morten and Peter have a confrontation, which is short-circuited when Inger goes into a difficult labor.

!!Tropes:

* AsYouKnow: A lot of dialogue establishing what's going on, like the exchange between Mikkel and Inger about how John is "27, and incurably mad."
* BackFromTheDead: Johannes actually does raise Inger from the dead.
* ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve: Johannes reappears after going wandering, back in possession of his wits, but still acting as if he is on a MissionFromGod. He tells everyone that if any of them actually truly believes in God and asks God to resurrect Inger, He will. Finally Mikkel and Inger's little daughter takes Johannes's hand and asks him to bring her mother back. And Johannes does.
* TheCloudCuckoolanderWasRight: Turns out Johannes ''can'' raise the dead.
* DeathByChildbirth: Inger dies, rather surpisingly, after the doctor has pronounced the danger over and gone home.
* DownOnTheFarm: Morten is very proud of his farm.
* FingerTwitchingReveal: The first sign of Ingeri's resurrection is when her dead hands twitch and unclasp.
* TheGrimReaper: Not actually shown, but Johannes insists that he is there, and entering Ingeri's sick room to take her away. Events seem to indicate that he is right.
* HappilyMarried: Mikkel and Ingeri adore each otherl. Mikkel comes completely apart when she dies.
* NapoleonDelusion: Johannes is under the impression that he is Jesus. He stares off into space and makes pronouncements about the people's lack of faith.
* ParentalMarriageVeto: Morten refuses to let Anders marry Anne--but when he finds out that Peter refused to let Anne marry Anders, he gets angry.
* SliceOfLife: Simple country folk, suffering tragedy and having crises of faith.
* TitleDrop: "Ordet" means "the word", and towards the end Johannes is calling the family to "Give me the word that can make the dead come alive."
