Spanning the 1910 decade, six years in the life of a girl named Chris, one of the numerous children of a tyrannical Scottish farmer. Years of high hopes and of disillusionment, of mirth and sorrow, of dreaming and toiling, of sweetness and violence, of love and hate, of peace and war. And in the end, the dignified loneliness of a new Chris, a woman who seems to have gone through several lives, now and forever as one with the land, the earth eternal... —Guy Bellinger
I do not know the trilogy of Lewis Grassic Gibbon. But I love this film for the flavors, for landscapes, for memories about other Scotish novels atmosphere, for bitterness and beautiful seeds of hope. Good acting, powerful message, wise perspective about life, a gentle feminist manifesto and one of films like a cold tea cup. Beautiful.
