Le poète danois

Le poète danois

| 15 min

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.

Language arts students can practise narrative strategies that “go against the grain,” and share them on storytelling day. They may write their own “family myths,” examining the difference between fact and fiction. Discuss poets’ creative impulses. Students of European history can map the differences in values, history and identity among the Scandinavian countries, explaining the satirical tone of the film.
