The Danish Poet

Posted on: February 16, 2007 | Views: 335 | Comment

Kasper, a young poet in search of inspiration, travels to Norway to meet the celebrated writer, Sigrid Undset.
In this clip, he proposes to a girl he met and fell in love with during his visit, only to find out that she's already engaged to someone else.

This is the second Academy Award nomination for Torill Kove. She was previously nominated for: MY GRANDMOTHER IRONED THE KING'S SHIRTS (MIN BESTEMOR STROK KONGENS SKJORTER) (1999) -- Nominee, Short Film (Animated).
After a short film Bobbie Peers' "SNIFFER" last year scored the first Golden Palm ever at Cannes for Norway, Norwegian director Torill Kove's DEN DANSKE DIKTEREN (THE DANISH POET) has entered the race for an Academy Award as Best Animated Short Film. THE DANISH POET which is narrated by Norwegian actress-director Liv Ullmann has so far screened at 29 festivals, and returned with seven prizes. Produced by Lise Fearnley and Marcy Page for Norway's Mikrofilm and the National Film Board of Canada. Torill Kove (b. May 25 1958 in Hamar) has worked with animation in various capacities at the National Film Board of Canada. In addition, she works as a designer, illustrator, animator and scriptwriter. Her filmography includes THE DANISH POET (2005) and MY GRANDMOTHER IRONED THE KING'S SHIRTS (1999).

Oscar Nominated Short Films are being released theatrically nationwide on February 16, 2007 by Magnolia Pictures and Shorts International.
The playdate schedule is on the Mag Pictures site.
