The 79th Academy Award has just been over. Who won, who lost, I don’t really worry about as I don’t have the great passion towards movie as I had in the past. If the winner is from Nordic countries, I will take a closer look. This year’s animated short film winner is “The Danish Poet”,a co-work of Norwegian and Canadian production companies. Without the help of computers, director Torill Kove used traditional method to produce this 15minute film about a young Danish poet, Kasper, who went to Norway to visit Nobel Literature Prize winner Sigrid Undset for inspiration and fell in love with other’s wife.
