TFF: Poling hay, funerals, and recording village events. A portrait of a peasant, who stopped time.

Heinän seivästystä, hautajaisia ja kylän tapahtumien tallentamista. Muotokuva talonpojasta, joka pysäytti ajan

AA: A beautiful documentary of the farmer Vasile Oanea who lives as a single and performs the traditional farming and household chores while also recording everything that happens in the village with his camera. "You never get bored with good people". He records a village funeral and the renovation of the church. He listens to a radio programme on shyness. He finishes a huge task of archiving all his images organized according to themes and dates. We also see his kindness to the nature, releasing a little bird and observing a butterfly. A classical style documentary well made.
