The Danish Poet

Directed by Torill Kove - 2006.

Winner of the 2007 Oscar® for Best Short Animation.

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) of The Danish Poet 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.

Produced by the
