Questo elegante documentario di Torben Skjødt Jensen è un collage di ricordi e riflessioni attorno ad uno dei più grandi registi della storia del cinema. "Carl Th. Dreyer - My métier", ricco di suggestioni visive e denso di riferimenti, presenta un artista poco compreso ma troppo importante per essere ignorato. Attraverso interviste, documenti e rare immagini d'archivio emerge il ritratto di Dreyer: un professionista austero, certamente, ma anche un uomo appassionato e dotato di un autentico senso dell'umorismo. The Criterion Collection presenta per prima volta in formato home-video questo approfondito studio della vita e dell'opera di Dreyer
