Carl Dreyer is still regarded as one of Denmark's greatest filmmakers, though during his life, his films were largely unappreciated. Dreyer was a complex, enigmatic figure and this Danish documentary attempts to chronicle his life using interviews with people who knew and worked with him. The film also makes extensive use of Dreyer's own recorded thoughts as well as archival photographs, letters, scripts and articles. The filmmakers also visit the locations of some of Dreyer's best known films. -- Sandra Brennan (
