Die Siebtelbauern – the Inheritors

https://i2.wp.com/www.filmkrant.nl/callback/resizeimg/447/-/siteimages/main/stills/S-T/siebtelbauern.jpgAustria, a little farming valley. Beginning of the century. When one of the farmers is found murdered one day, his labourers know of nothing, but are relieved, as the tyranny has ended. Then, something new happens for the first time in history: The farm workers inherit the whole farm together, as the farmer himself was childless. Now, conflicts come up, as nobody is the boss and nobody has to obey. Written by Julian Reischl

That’s what Julian Reischl writes about the Siebtelbauern  – The Inheritors on IMDb.

I remember I felt such a sense of relief that I was finally watching a “Heimatfilm” that dealt with issues like hierarchy instead of just reproducing stereotypes of Dirndl-dress and manhood.
