I have always loved this touching little movie. A beautiful animation written and directed by Michael Dudok de Wit.
A father says goodbye to his young daughter and leaves. As the wide Dutch landscapes live through their seasons so the girl lives through hers. She becomes a young woman, has a family and in time she becomes old, yet within her there is always a deep longing for her father.
Winner of Best Animated Short Film in 2001.
