At one point the farmers tie a bottle to a pear tree and stick a small branch with a blossom inside. They do this so, in a few months, the result will be a full sized pear inside the bottle, much too big to have been put into the bottle in the usual way. One of the farmers uses it to make a bottle of a pear flavored alcoholic drink, with the pear still inside, and the bottle, pear, and drink appear late in the film when the two farmers and Sandrine have a drink together.

Greetings again from the darkness. Wonderful, subtle French film that displays the nuances of quiet desperation of the young and fear of loneliness and death of the elderly. Make no mistake, the venerable Michel Serrault MAKES this movie! He is downright remarkable as Adrien, the long time farmer, who sells is farm to the young city girl played well by Mathilde Seigner. Many excellent scenes including awkward moments for all. The ridiculous comments about cruelty to animals during the filming is not worthy of mention. This is a fact of life on a farm and obviously the cow scenes were real life - not created for the film. The pig scene, may be painful to watch, but effectively makes the point of life and death on a farm - just like the goat birth scene. As far as the rabbit, give me a break, we see a live bunny and then one being prepared for dinner. This can happen in any restaurant on a daily basis. Yes the hang glider was a bit too much, too often, but I loved the Volvo, the Weimeramer and the "dumb" goat. Very personal film with much insight into human nature at all ages.
