Reality in the countryside
27 December 2013 | by milton-freddySee all my reviews

During the preceding three decades, the film industry had presented numerous dramas set in the countryside with quaint characters of the past and inevitably happy endings. Not so with this movie, where the director takes up the alarming new state of affairs, with many farms existing on the brink of bankruptcy. The farmer Knud, portrayed by the energetic Ole Ernst believe in the old ideals of ownership but must realize that his farm is more in the hands of the banks. This new situation take heavy tolls on his marriage, and things are likely to end up in a downfall. This realism of modern farming seldom seen seriously depicted in films caused both the director, Morten Arnfred and the leading actor, Ole Ernst to receive the year's Bodil awards for their convincing story depiction.
