Storyline

At the beginning of time, giants created the mountains and deep forests that surround the small town of Ydre. Sweden's smallest municipality is surrounded by lakes, fog and towering spruce trees, and has a population of just a few thousands which is carefully monitored by the town's friendly and idealistic mayor. Depopulation and the many problems of the great outside world are becoming an increasingly present threat, so the mayor is ready with gifts and big smiles every time a child is born and he can carefully note that Ydre has a new inhabitant. In the meantime, youths and elderly people are working and living their lives. Creation myths, fables and everyday realism are mixed with understated comedy in an atmospheric and almost miraculously ubiquitous fresco of a film. Evocative and elegant. Written by Malla Grapengiesser
