Reel №1


The film with motifs Expressionism.

Map of Germany, the area near Bremen.

Sunrise over marsh, mist creeps over the ground, heard the cries of birds.

The man is engaged in the ancient craft of natural peat production for sale.

He digs peat layer by layer and puts it into the cart.

Carries heavy luggage, throws in a special pit, tamps feet in clogs.

He then cuts the "bricks" made of peat and placed in a handcart.

He passes by the river, a man and a woman pulling on it with a boat rope on shore.

Night on the river silhouette of a sailboat.

In the morning a man comes into town, driven by truck through the narrow old streets and offers his goods.

Key words

Germany, marsh, natural phenomena, population, commerce, town, birds

Reel №2


Old man's face, he goes way back, unable to sell all the peat.

Ferried in a boat on the river.

Stopover, he was sitting by the fire with a young guy and remembers the past.

The morning, the old man sitting by the river, then goes to the house.

He puts on the table the letter and keys, and extinguishes the lamp.

Symbolic picture with a scythe.

The old man dies.

Sleeps nature, the moon is reflected in the river, the shadows of the trees in the forest.

On the ground crawling snake.

Muzzle owl.

Life goes on.

Workers digging peat spades.

A young man with a boy goes for a horse with a plow.
