The Danish Poet by Torill Kove

NFB 2007, 15mins 16s

English

Can we trace the chain of events that leads to our own birth? Is our existence just coincidence? Do little things matter?

The narrator, Liv Ullmann, considers these questions as we follow Kasper, a poet whose creative well has run dry, on a holiday to Norway to meet the famous writer, Sigrid Undset. As Kasper’s quest for inspiration unfolds, it appears that a spell of bad weather, an angry dog, slippery barn planks, a careless postman, hungry goats and other seemingly unrelated factors might play important roles in the big scheme of things after all.

This film won the 2007 OSCAR for Best Short Subjects Animation.
