Unlike Clark’s story, Wahl’s relationship with Dreyer is purely Platonic and provides insight into the director’s intellect; his process of thinking the scenes through to create a rhythm conducive to the viewing audience’s own tempo so the pieces of a story are synchronized to be comprehended instantly. His goal was always to move his audience by the film’s finale.

So Jan Wahl's Carl Theodor Dreyer and Ordet: My Summer With the Danish Filmmaker - with its fascinating descriptions of the director's intentions for his great dream project - comes as one of the most welcome film books of the year. Wahl - who would go on to write children's books - was then a 21-year-old American student, invited after some correspondence to Denmark to observe production, in 1954, of the rural religious drama Ordet (which would win a Golden Globe and Venice's Golden Lion).

Regarded by many filmmakers and critics as one of the greatest directors in cinema history, Carl Theodor Dreyer (1889–1968) achieved worldwide acclaim after the debut of his masterpiece, The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928), which was named the most influential film of all time at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival. In 1955 Dreyer granted twenty-three-year-old American student Jan Wahl the extraordinary opportunity to spend a unique and unforgettable summer with him during the filming of Ordet (The Word [1955]). Carl Theodor Dreyer and Ordet: My Summer with the Danish Filmmaker is a captivating account of Wahl's time with the director, based on Wahl's daily journal accounts and transcriptions of his conversations with Dreyer. Offering a glimpse into the filmmaker's world, Wahl fashions a portrait of Dreyer as a man, mentor, friend, and director. Wahl's unique and charming account is supplemented by exquisite photos of the filming and by selections from Dreyer's papers, including his notes on film style, his introduction for the actors before the filming of Ordet, and a visionary lecture he delivered at Edinburgh. Carl Theodor Dreyer and Ordet details one student's remarkable experiences with a legendary director and the unlikely bond formed over a summer.

This book was a rare treat. I have been interested in Kaj Munk's plays, and the films of Carl Dreyer, for many years. Jan Wahl has written an interesting book that covers both subjects, as well as being an interesting account of his own experiences as a young man in 1955 when Dreyer filmed "Ordet" (The Word). I was familiar with Jan Wahl from his children's books, but had no idea that he had been involved with Carl Dreyer, or had lived in Denmark for a time. This book is a great resource for anyone interested in these subjects. I highly recommend it!

The book gave me an inside view of the making of a classic film. Although I ha e not seen this film of Dreyer 's, I have seen Joan and Vampyr. I look forward to viewing Ordet after reading the book
