In the Ehrengard story, considered by many the Summit of the Tales, Isak Dinesen or Karen Blixen (ahead or behind itself) tells a story referred by a narrator who tells what another narrator told him. Everything happened so long ago that there is not even the kingdom where everything happened. And so the story is screwed over itself until the voice that refers it in the argument itself. The bottom is glimpsed on the surface. The background is palpated with your hands. Actually, and although it costs the state of hypnosis that the writer submits to the reader, what is spoken of is nothing more than the subtle and slave relationship between art and one's life. Can life live alien to the art that reports it and gives meaning?
Of all this deals with the covenant, the last Bille August movie twice winner of the golden palm according to the autobiographic novel by Thorkild Bjørnvig. «From always, this sick story was fascinated that portrays the great heroine of my country as a more desperate manipulative that simply evil," says the director to justify what from a point of view perhaps too innocent can be considered the desecration of a tomb. .

"Everything that is seen is real", please August in his effort to justify as unjustifiable. "She understood art as a way of appeased the internal demons, as an obligatory calvary of suffering," he adds. She demands that she separates from her family, that she despise the woman of him, who even reject the son of her and, if the case, seek a lover. And he, submissive, is aware of both the destruction that leaves at the passage of him as of the strength of a tortured life converted in an art into art, of a life that only makes sense through the same art. Even if he hurts beyond the reasonable.
Actually, and maybe as in Ehrengard, everything responds to the same impulse. Blixen's work was fueled an existence converted into a fable. And so, only that way, life acquired sense as the story of a story whose only argument is the hurt voice that keeps it. "The reality of Blixen was a creation of his.
