Jannik Hastrup, Denmark, 1993

5 min.DK/Short fictionMusic films, Children's films, Animation

One of the gems in the history of jazz is Vernon Duke's April in Paris, immortalized by Count Basie and his Orchestra. Jannik Hastrup interpretes lively and bubblingly April in Paris - completely in his own line and style - as experienced by the rheumatic woman, the cat and the two courting birds in the middle of the eternal, love-provoking, wonderful spring of Paris.
