Synopsis

Tiré d’un poème de Marie Jacobs, ce court métrage d’animation, réalisé par le cinéaste oscarisé Co Hoedeman, rend hommage à l’ingéniosité du peuple néerlandais durant une période sombre de son histoire. Les années 1944-1945, c’est la guerre. Aux Pays-Bas, durant le long hiver de la faim, des femmes récupèrent la laine d’un joli couvre-pied et tricotent 55 chaussettes qui serviront de monnaie d’échange contre de la nourriture. Plongeant dans ses souvenirs d’enfance, Hoedeman livre ici un film poétique et simple, d’une rare beauté.
