In the documentary The Old Man in the Cottage you can follow one year in the life of Ragnar, who lives in Kestina, in the forests of Dalecarlia. The film portrays the everyday life of the retired forest worker without any narration. The life of this lonely man is regulated by the changing of the seasons and the weather just like in times past.
Ragnar was born many years ago on the kitchen sofa of the hut, as were his father and grandfather before him. We are invited to accompany Ragnar through the seasons and the changes in nature and the weather. We participate in a way of life that not all too long ago was very common and today has all but disappeared. —Surrealmoviez
