Die Landschaftsgaertner

Switzerland, 1970 (MIFF 1971, Programme 22)

Director: Kurt Gloor

This is not the usual film about the idyllic existence of the Swiss peasants living in the snow-clad mountains, yodelling with carefree abandon. It is about those peasants who have lost their taste for singing, the real proletariat of Switzerland.

FIPRESCI Prize, Oberhausen 1970; Quality Prize, Swiss Ministry of the Interior
