This portrait of a woman in the French countryside in the 1960s also captures the transformation of society, its relationship to the environment and how it uses the land. With simple documentary images, it reveals the last moments of a disappearing, changing rural world.

Our take

Rohmer decides to follow a farmer as part of a series of commissioned TV films depicting French women at work. Produced by Barbet Schroeder, this warm short evocatively presents the everyday activities of rural life to the rhythms of the passing seasons, capturing an old way of life in transition.
