It's All So Quiet

Boven is het stil

Helmer, a single farmer in his fifties, lives with his aged, bedridden father in the Dutch countryside. The routine of his working days changed by the visits of milk collector Johan, a man of his own age for whom Helmer holds a secret fascination, but also by the arrival of an adolescent farmhand who comes to help him out at work in the farm. The genealogy and inescapable nature of fragile masculinity, through a quiet female take.
