It's a beautiful film, the camera lingering on the gorgeous scenery and the daily rhythms of life on a sheep farm. The acting is consistently excellent and understated and the story is engrossing. It is however very depressing and Gaby's passivity becomes wearing for the viewer. There seems to be no hope at the end for Gaby and with other of his elderly farming neighbours taking the decision to sell their farms, there seems little hope for the future of sheep farming either.
I seem to watch a lot of films about sheep farming. You might be interested to check out my reviews for:
Cycle - a Turkish film about a sheep washing contest
Vivan las Antipodas - a documentary that includes a section on a Chilean sheep farmer
Off the Beaten Tracks - a documentary about a Rumamian sheep farmer
Le Quattro Volte - an Italian film about charcoal making and farming (though it's goats rather than sheep)
