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. Written by Eduardo Casais <eduardo.casais@research.nokia.com>

Sobre statement on French farming society
13 July 1999 | by Guy33134See all my reviews

Since Y AURA-T-IL DE LA NEIGE A NOEL? often appears to be a documentary, the film succeeds in reflecting the gritty realism of French farming society, the plight of the minorities working in it (particularly women and children), and the dysfunctional families this society spawns. These are universal themes. They are played out primarily by a young mother of seven children, shamelessly exploited as farmhands by her man, who has a "legitimate family" in a nearby village. Their daily life is very naturally exposed on film, accentuated by the changing nuances of the different seasons of the year, ending in winter, during "Noel" or Christmas. All this, however, sounds a lot better than it plays on the screen. Even at 90 minutes, the film seems overly long, and is tedious watching for most audiences. There may not be a more captivating way to address these issues, but ultimately, it is a bore for all but die-hard fans of the social realism genre.
