"Directed by Richard Hobert, with Rudi Køhnke, Vigdis Hentze Bjørck, Jørgen Langhelle, Sebastian Courivaud, Hedda Rehnberg and Livia Millhagen."
"the DRAMA of A son. It is not enough with their daughters. Esmar and Johanna have a lease on the Faroe islands during the 1800s. For that they should retain the farm must Esmar get a male heir within a year. Should they dare to take a chance on making a child again and that it will be a son?nEller to Johanna, trying to become pregnant by another man and pretend it is Esmar who is the biological father? In the film talk about a medical book by a doctor in Paris who claims that some men can't get sons. Perhaps goes it better with a stranger who is temporarily in the Faroe islands? They contact their good friend, Livia (Livia Millhagen), who runs the tavern and hotel in the village. She get in touch with a man she is close to. Which also has its complications."
"Strong feelings on many sides.non the Faroe islands are a French ship. It is a meeting place for people from many countries and with different backgrounds. There is a Danish rule and a law upheld by the Danish governor. Among the islanders slumbers the old contradictions which can easily be brought back to life. Jørgen Langhelle is playing a rich farmer who has long been looking for Johanna, and cannot accept that she does not want him.nRichard Hobert has written and directed a loaded story inspired by real events. There is an interesting continuation on the long-awaited son, as it is a pity to reveal. The film is worth seeing, with good actors that gives the nerve to the dramatic story, with tragic elements. That sons are valued higher than daughters, and the need for male heirs, not just in the farming community in the Faroe islands.nNaturen plays an important role and is an important player. Esmar is, among other things, skilled at hunting sea birds by climbing on ropes along the steep klippväggarna. The camera captures many breathtaking images of the rugged landscape.nthere are many gaps. Between the mountains, between men and women, between rich and poor, children and adults, between people from different countries. Many mean well, but people get pinched so it hurts. "
