I se en bat med seil



A weather-beaten face, an old man, skiing near Rondance mountain … Neapolitan song, music across the snow, childhood memories of summer, a boat … The landscape is covered in snow now, a boat here, in the snow … What is going on? – A tale which recounts the poetic story of an old man who, since boyhood, has always been fascinated by a beautiful sailing boat which used to ply across a lake in the mountains. Now, while he is out icefishing, he is forced to watch the yawl dying out on the frozen lake surrounded by steep, snow-capped glaciers as the owners break up the boat’s decrepit old hull and cast it into the flames.
