Storyline

Austria, a little farming valley. Beginning of the century. When one of the farmers is found murdered one day, his labourers know of nothing, but are relieved, as the tyranny has ended. Then, something new happens for the first time in history: The farm workers inherit the whole farm together, as the farmer himself was childless. Now, conflicts come up, as nobody is the boss and nobody has to obey. Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

Marx in upland Austria
27 June 1999 | by (nottingham) – See all my reviews

An extended demonstration that proletarian struggle is as likely in the pastures as in the steelworks. We side with the peasants as they first feel their way into owning the means of production, then fight the hovering capitalist class as they snipe from the sidelines. A bucolic fantasy overtaken by a sobering chill and a sickening end.
