Die Landschaftsgaertner (1970) [Short]

Switzerland (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.
