My Grandmother Ironed the King's Shirts

Filmmaker Torill Kove tells a wonderful story about her grandmother's life and work in Oslo during World War II. Some parts of it are even true!

Sharp and whimsical, her story combines her grandmother's tales with historical events and fantasy, showing how a cherished anecdote can come to acquire a mythical status. King Harald of Norway said, "I love the irony of this short."

My Grandmother Ironed the King's Shirts was nominated for an Oscar in 1999.  -via Nag on the Lake
