At one point the farmers tie a bottle to a pear tree and stick a small branch with a blossom inside. They do this so, in a few months, the result will be a full sized pear inside the bottle, much too big to have been put into the bottle in the usual way. One of the farmers uses it to make a bottle of a pear flavored alcoholic drink, with the pear still inside, and the bottle, pear, and drink appear late in the film when the two farmers and Sandrine have a drink together.

a film you have to see with your heart, as well as with your eyes
a slow tempo movie, with no big scenes, no breathtaking special effects, just a small number of actors and the peaceful scenery of the French alps that touch the heart. all these are the background of the slow development of the relationship between the 2 main characters of the story. Sandrine, a young Parisian woman, who decided to leave the big city and buy a farm at the French alps. Adrian is the old owner of the farm, who remained living at the farm after the sale, but at first, refuses to help Sandrine and guide her. the peaceful yet cruel nature is the background of the mutual process that the two characters experience. the old man and the young woman who learn to accept each other and even like each other very much.
