Antonia's line

11 yrs 98 minutes 1995 7.4

Antonia is old and looks back on her life and the women she met and lived with. Immediately after World War II, she arrives with a teenage daughter in tow to the family farm outside a village in the Dutch countryside. It's a harsh existence, but they manage to farm the land and make ends meet. Eventually they bring in some wind-driven existences that are also given an opportunity to live and grow and leave their shattered lives behind them. Antonia's line is a story about life and people which won an Oscar for best foreign film in 1996. Filmsöndag's Fredrik Fyhr writes that "It's a movie that finds a simple, obvious harmony in life - crashing and factual but full of solidarity and love, drowned in a romantic and picturesque setting that almost, but only almost, makes the tale too good to be true. "
