Præsten fra Havet

Fritz Magnussen, Denmark, 1918

DK/FeatureSilent films

Vicar Strom (Fønss) is caught in a battle between the poor fishermen of the coastal village and the merchant Warming, who owns all the fishing boats. Warming's daughter, Agnete, is in love with the young vicar and tries to help him to lessen her father's demands on the fishermen. Warming's demands of having the fishermen fish day and night is refused, and Warming calls a lock-out, with poverty and starvation as a result.
One day Warming is caught in a storm and the fishermen refuse to assist. The say: "He himself forbade us to use the boats!" However, as vicar Strom himself enters the boat single-handedly, they are convinced to turn the other cheek and try to save Warming from certain death.
