Trivia:
Another in-joke is apparent in "Scandinavian Confusion," in which the entry about Nobel-Prize-winning author Sigrid Undset happens to face the entry on Alfred Nobel.See more »
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.

A beautiful piece that deserved it's Oscar..., 28 February 2007
Author: LockedShut from London, England

I watched the Academy Awards and saw this win, and of course, hadn't heard of it. I stuffed the memory of it in the back of my head and when I finally remembered, finally looked it up online, I was blown away by how wonderful it is.

The Danish Poet is a great story, that I've often considered to be true, in that maybe the little things in our lives do shape our path. It's full of these wondrous little moments that make you sigh, make you laugh, make you say "awww..." It's quite probably the best film I've seen this year, and given that it's 15 minutes long, that's saying something...
