As winter approaches in rural 1850s Denmark, an old farmer (Jens) and his family face starvation. With the harsh circumstances and the prospect of yet another tough winter, Jens agrees to ally with the neighbor family in a marriage between his daughter and their son. However, when the rich farmer at a nearby farm wants to buy Jens's land, he sees a chance to provide him and his family with an even better life.
In 19th century Denmark, a struggling old farmer makes a Faustian deal with his rich Swedish neighbor, who is grasping and unprincipled in economic matters. The film was well acted, and includes grand dame Ghita Norby as the rich Swede's toadlike evil mother.
My main quibble is that the film is severely underlit -- perhaps a legacy of Dogma95? Still, this is a film worth seeing.
