"My wife’s family have been living right around the corner for years. Their apartment shares a wall with Dreyer’s. I have often observed the apartment and heard stories about the days Dreyer lived there. One day the apartment was unoccupied and I went straight over there with a bag of beers for the superintendent, hoping he would let me in. The new tenant was fixing up the apartment and I shot this short film."

Leif Rørvig: "Well, I was very surprised, honoured and delighted to have the good fortune of taking over this apartment, which is now being renovated, and at the thought that the great director lived quite a few years in this apartment. I was a very young man when I saw The Word, and I distinctly remember the very, very powerful impression the film made on me, as a youth, then. I have also seen Joan of Arc, and of course I have been following all the press about Dreyer. So, it is a delightful feeling to know that you are living in the same flat where Carl Th. Dreyer lived for so many years."
