»One’s life is one’s own affair.«
Even young love grows better in the agricultural cooperative! Hotheaded new collectivism clashes with stubborn old individualism, an absurd and today almost surreal premise that nevertheless effectively builds drama.
Macho patriarchs and trapped, unhappy women struggle in a surprisingly backwards, almost medieval-seeming rural society. Dizzying possibilities are symbolized by – too many – montages of swirling dance and amusement rides. Alcohol and music serve as efficient catalysts.
Life can and will be better! Maybe in my book of self-empowerment.
