“This gentle but impactful Great War drama is as eye-wateringly beautiful as a Renoir landscape” Time Out

The lives of the women left behind on the farms are slowly, minutely, sumptuously depicted in this never sentimental Great War drama. Set over five years of grit, determination, tragedy and love, the women face a changing world. The drama of their intimate lives is as challenging as the times they live in.

“The beauty and pathos of this film are vivid in every frame” The Guardian
