Montreal kicks Oscar ass!

Posted by Omar / February 26, 2007

danishPoet.jpgIt's no secret to anyone who has ever seen Richard Condie's The Big Snit - "WHY ARE YOU ALWAYS SHAKING YOUR EYES!" - that the NFB does do some great animation.

And moreover, Montreal in particular seems to have cornered the market on Best Animated Short at the Oscars. Ryan won a few years back, and Mr. Larkin himself was nominated all those years ago. Now we have Torill Kove's NFB/Norway co-production, The Danish Poet to add to our list.

The film is narrated by Liv Ullman, of Ingmar Bergman fame, and follows a poet named Kasper who travels to Norway to meet a famous writer.

CBC will broadcast the film on March 4th - so, set your vcr's and/or tivos and give a little love already.

I saw it ahead of the Cannes 2006 Advertising winners reel currently on at Cinema Du Parc. You know, for those that want to watch a bunch of commercials after the short. It was quite good.

Very good site you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any user discussion forums that cover the same topics

If you have any recommendations, please let me know.
Many thanks!
