Storyline

This Flemish heimat-movie after a novel by Felix Timmermans, the title of which translates as "farmers psalm", is about the at first sight idyllic, but actually tragical life of Wortel, a god-fearing peasant in a pre-war Belgian village, who has a hard time accepting the curate's assurance it's all part of God's grand plan when his loved ones keep coming to terrible harm, and searching solace in the hand-carving of a wooden statue of Christ. Written by KGF Vissers

Amusing tale
11 July 1999 | by sipreanaSee all my reviews

The movie tells the life-story of Wortel (carrot or root), a young flemish farmer at the beginning of this century. Birth and death, love and lust, hardship and simple happiness, they are all ingredients. Brought to the viewer in a slightly detached yet humorous way. I quite liked it.
