A Short Film Review: The Danish Poet

I was treated to a pleasant surprise at the movie theatre tonight. I took in both Dreamgirls and The Queen, and instead of playing a bunch of trailers before The Queen, I and the other two people in the theatre got to watch Torill Kove's "The Danish Poet", which was co-produced by the National Film Board and is nominated for Best Animated Short Film at the Oscars. Such a treat has never happened to me at the movie theatre. The film is delightful and funny. The animation is nice and simple, and the story is fantastic.

The NFB have posted the film on their Oscar page, so take 14 minutes to watch it.
