Le poète danois

Top of page

Peut-on retracer la chaîne d'événements qui a mené à notre naissance? Notre existence n'est-elle qu'une coïncidence? Les détails ont-ils de l'importance?

La narratrice du court métrage Le poète danois réfléchit à ces questions en suivant Kasper, un poète en panne d'inspiration en vacances en Norvège pour rencontrer Sigrid Undset, une célèbre écrivaine. Dans sa quête d'inspiration, Kasper découvre que le mauvais temps, un chien enragé, des planches de grange glissantes, un facteur négligeant, des chèvres affamées et d'autres éléments apparemment indépendants pourraient après tout exercer une grande influence sur le fil de la vie.
