Trivia

Jon Bang Carlsen likes to introduce fictional elements into his documentaries and this film is no exception. He writes: »The film is about a 76-year-old woman named Jenny Jespersen. I met her a few years ago quite by chance during one of my many visits to the Bovbjerg district on the west coast of Jutland. The better I got to know her, the more fascinated I became, because I found in her some human qualities which I believed had long since disappeared - even though I only knew them from descriptions in 19th century literature concerned with this region. Her Christian faith is of the strong, old-fashioned Presbyterian kind, but she manages to uphold it in blissful harmony with a perfectly sober attitude to modern living patterns. This district, like so many others in western Jutland, suffers from depopulation because young people are drawn to the industrial environment of the towns, leaving behind them a group of old people, most of whom were born in the district and grew up together.« See more »
