City people might find this a raw environment. Pigs and dirt and a somewhat disturbed female farmer meeting another slightly disturbed person with cancer. It ends in love, as you had expected.
It can be discussed whether this really is a comedy or the opposite. You don't laugh much even when you're supposed to. The characters are very square, except for the girl, well performed by Jördis Triebel.
