Quotes:
[last lines]
Narrator:But had it not been for the Danish poet and Sigrid Undset, a rainy summer in Norway, a slippery barn plank, a careless mailman, a hungry goat, a broken thumb, and a crowded train, my parents might never have met at all, and who knows; I might still be a little seed floating around in the sky waiting for someone to come and get me.

Reminds us to appreciate all the little things around us that we no longer notice, 2 November 2008
Author: Gordon-11 from Earth

This short film is about a series of coincidences and accidents that led to the birth of the woman who wrote the story.

"The Danish Poet" is surprisingly heartwarming. The animation is simple with lots of soft colours and black borders on all items. It almost looks like a cartoon for infants. I find this particularly charming, as it enables us to regress to our childhood to appreciate all the little things around us that we no longer notice. The story itself is heartwarming and engaging. It made me smile from the heart, which is not something many films can do.

"The Danish Poet" is a beautiful film. Watch it if you have a chance.
