Trivia

The scarity of film stock forced the director to divide his project into five distinct parts spread out over three years of shooting (the four seasons with an "interlude" showing a country wedding). The five parts were:
  • De lente/Le printemps/Spring (31 minutes)
  • De zomer/L'été/Summer (23 minutes)
  • Boerenbruiloft/Noce paysannes/Peasant wedding (19 minutes)
  • De herfst/L'automne/Autumn (20 minutes)
  • De winter/L'hiver/Winter (22 minutes).
