The small farmer against the big authorities
18 April 1999 | by HGH-3See all my reviews

Egon is a farmer with a few milk-cows. He has always had the milk picked up from his table by the road-side. One day the dairy company and the road-authorities decide that he, and every other farmer shall deliver the milk-cans to a common table quite a way from Egon's farm. He refuses to obey and keeps his table by the road-side. Every time the snow-plow passes by his table, the driver makes shure he demolishes Egon's table. But Egon builds a new table. The next day the snow-plow smashes that one as well. Egon builds another. It gets smashed. Who will win this "mid-winter duel"? Lars Molin has always honored the little man. He could be a farmer, a factory-worker, even an alcoholic. This film is no different. It's a lot of fun watching the farmer coming up with new ideas as how to overcome the authorities. Why is Egon so stubborn? Well, first of all; Nobody asked him. And second; If you bend for decisions made by others in a small matter, what will happen next? Today we have the answer to the last question. The little dairy-farmer is now extinct. Now the dairy-companies only gets their milk by the tons from gigantic farms with thousands of milk cows. Lars Molin saw it happen way back in 1983.

This sounds very serious, and it is. Underneath. Lars Molin always used humor and whit, combined with social comment. Only when it's over you realize that this wasn't just a farce or a comedy. If you get a chance to see it, you will laugh all the way through it and then you start thinking...
