Storyline

A poetic and warm documentary about the siblings Magnar and Oddny, which in their 70'ies are still running their family farm like it's been done in generations before them. See from the outside, it's almost like time has stood still, except from a tractor, which has substituted the horse, and they've got electricity. A film about simple life in contact with nature, like in the old forgotten days. Written by OJT

An unlikely cinema success about farmer siblings
28 December 2013 | by OJTSee all my reviews

Originally made for TV, this documentary was shown in cinema due to the big interest that was shown for it. And it was an amazing success in the cinemas as well, before it now will be shown on TV channels across the world.

We meet the hard working siblings Magnar and Oddny which runs a mountain farm in the western part of Norway together, like they've done all their life, since they took over for their parents. They are now in their seventies, and their age is take it's toll and their backs are almost humpbacks from all the heavy work on the farm during the years. They never came to find time to get married, and they live like you would do in times long gone. They live without TV, and have never been to cinema, but they have a tractor. We follow their year with work in the beautiful scenery, are there like fly's on the wall when they have to put down an old milking cow, when they get letter from their relatives in America, when they are driven to the shop by a neighbor. We get to know what they think about modern life, which they recent to a certain degree. They are in close contact with nature, and feed birds and wild animals.

The siblings live like almost no one do in today's Norway. A country with the highest income per capita in the Western world. It's like time have stood still at the farm. They don't miss out on traditions like Christmas tree or the making of Christmas food. And we get to know how they read nature's signs for weather or the coming season. A funny part us when they get a summer visit from Minnesota, though they need a translator, since they never learned to speak English.

The beautiful nature and seasons are captured well, sometimes as time laps. This is not slow-TV, but still it shows the slow life and seasonal changes, and also much of what hard work it is to run a small farm. Well filmed, but still quite strange that this was to be put up as a cinema release, and even more so becoming a success there. Goes to show that sometimes people wants something different.
