"Stefan Ruzowitzky's saga: A farmer in the Mühlviertel region passes on his mockery to his neighbors and his scorn to the priest. The farmhands get the farm. Ruzowitzky portrays the socialization of agriculture as great revolutionary theater, the exaggeration of the Heimatfilm owes its means to advertising as well as surrealism, but almost all effects are set with great certainty. A precise story of emancipation." BERT REBHANDL

"I don't want to break with the whole Heimatfilm tradition, but make a modern drama in this ambience." STEFAN RUZOWITZKY
