Danish veteran actor Jesper Christensen is farmer Jens in this haunting period piece set in the Danish countryside. A tough winter almost knocks out the proud freehold farmer who loses the season’s harvest and yet another cow. But Jens makes a deal to sell his family land and marry off his daughter, and suddenly his own integrity as a human being is at stake. With roots in documentary, director Michael Noer delivers a shivering existential drama.
