As he spends more time with members of the crew, Wahl begins to notice Dreyer's private exploration of biblical topics. Though production for Ordet is still in progress, Dreyer turns much of his attention to his most cherished project, The Life of Jesus. Wahl also discusses the intrusion of photographers and reporters on the location shoots. He describes Dreyer's reception of them as polite and cordial. After this, Wahl shares a story of Dreyer's frustration at needing to remake a particularly difficult shot for the film Ordet. Dreyer comments on the differences in his vision and Bendtsen's vision for the film. At the end of the chapter, after weeks of rain, the crew wraps up production and returns to Copenhagen. With their departure comes three weeks of sunny weather in Borgensgaard.
