Charles O'Brien's comment:
According to Dreyer scholar Casper Tybjerg, who provides the voice-over commentary on the Criterion dvd edition, this film contains 1,517 shots, so I feel pretty happy with my count of 1,513. One thing that makes this film easy to count, all its deep and wonderful peculiarities notwithstanding, is Dreyer's approach to dialogue. First, we see the speaker's lips move, then we get a dialog intertitle, and after that a shot of the speaker's lips ceasing to move; next comes a shot of whomever, presumably, the speaker has been addressing. Since this pattern is followed quite rigorously, and much of the film involves dialogue, it's often possible--during dialogue passages, anyway--for the viewer to think ahead a few shots, predicting what will come next.
