Show Summary Details


The final chapter details the end of Wahl's summer with Dreyer. He describes the feast cooked by Ebba Dreyer the night before he leaves Denmark. Wahl chooses to leave because of Dreyer's need to work in isolation on all studio scenes. Wahl returns to Copenhagen by bus and by ferryboat. He claims that the trip reminds him of his most beloved short film by Dreyer, They Caught the Ferry. The film is only 12 minutes in length, but Wahl describes it as an impressive, eye-catching spine tingler. In the final lines of the chapter, Wahl jokes about meeting more terrible weather on his return trip to America.
