Storyline

Adam is a young farmer. As a child, fleeing the bleak reality of his mother's life as a prostitute, he tumbled from a mountain and was mentally injured. Years later, his mother is dying, so Adam sells their only cow to pay for medicine. Rosa, a beautiful young maid, fleeing the sexual exploitation of a wealthy butcher, climbs up to join them on their remote farm and dares to become part of Adam's world. A cycle of life begins again, in a remote turn-of-the-century village tied to the land and its animals. Written by Fiona Kelleghan <fkelleghan@aol.com>

A poignant voyage-Tangible & Cruel at the same time-Brilliant!
27 December 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A tale of Love & Disgust, Ecstasy & Agony, Bond & Hatred, I mean all the ingredients of the life.

Adam is a young farmer, mentally & emotionally hurt, living with his ill mother who was a prostitute. Adam sells their only cow in exchange with the medicine for her dying mother. Rosa, a good-looking young girl comes to him to join his lonely life. They both live happily until the life goes full circle, in this rural area of former Czechoslovakia, with a bonding to their newly bought cow.

The set is beautiful and serene with lush and tranquil lives. The actors have done tremendous job and I am sure it was extremely difficult for them to shoot in these locations with real hard work. Kudos to the crew of the film for their endeavor in such a rustic manner.

A film with minimal dialogues doesn't require pages of conversation among the actors but says everything which is essential. The sentiments while fighting back with life and endurance are shown effortlessly and flawlessly. The "slice-of-life" drama is a very hard nut to crack genre to depict in a movie with all the emotional chords touched however, the director has left no stone unturned.
