IT’S ALL SO QUIET

DIRECTOR: Nanouk Leopold - NETHERLANDS

Leopold takes a precise look at solitude and sexuality in this sensitive and delicate film, based on a novel by Gerbrand Bakker. Helmer is a single farmer in his 50s who lives with his aged, bedridden father in the Dutch countryside. Each day he is visited by Johan, a milk truck driver of his own age, who is clearly attracted to Helmer but is rebuffed. The relationship with his father is a difficult one, and Helmer lives in a state of solitude and frustration. The arrival of an attractive farmhand triggers complex feelings of desire and hesitation in Helmer and creates a new momentum in his life. Beautifully capturing the pace of rural life, Leopold’s quiet, visually vivid drama rewards with its rare and sensitive depiction of the intense longings of ordinary people. (93 mins.)

Filmography: Guernsey (05), Wolfsbergen (07), Brownian Movement (10).
