Storyline

A woman and her seven children live on a farm in Southern France. In spite of the hard work and the mediocre accommodation, their life would be a happy one, but for one person: the owner of the farm an egotistic and authoritarian individual, who is also the lover of the woman and the father of all her children. The farmer handles them as his property, uses them as cheap labour to work in the fields, and denies them the right to leave the farm. It is only the love of the woman for her children that allows them to endure their situation; but even for her, disenchantment has set in.

That's life
13 February 2002 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews





Life in a French farm is as hard as in every farm in this world. As a matter of fact life is hard everywhere for those who have to work to make their own living. Mother Earth only yields its fruit if men work hard on it for that purpose. But beyond this men (and women)have their own problems and troubles in their mutual relationships. In this story we have a man who lives a double marital life. He's got his legitimate spouse in town with their kids but he's got another woman in his farm also with a lot of children she's got of him. Domestic conflict arises very often adding up to the harshness of farm life with all its uncomfortable features. The children are the noblest and purest element of the story with their innocence and purity. An in the end the snow falls on the fields like a symbol of purity of nature over man's misery and filth. The farmer's mistress looks at the falling snow through the window and she feels like if the snow were falling on her distressed soul too curing it of its deep wounds. This movie is filmed with utmost naturalistic simplicity in a documentary style with no background music. In conclusion we can say that if it is not a great movie at least it's a movie which tells us a story of true and real life in a very realistic way I mean a film that doesn't lie to us.
