Boven is het stil - It's All So Quiet

Feature film, 2013, 94 min.

Helmer, a single middle-aged farmer, leads a secluded life with his elderly father who sees him as a failure. The daily visits by milk collector Johan, a robust fellow Helmer?s age, are bright spots in his otherwise drab life. One day, Helmer changes tack: he tidies up the house, moves his bedridden father upstairs and hires a farmhand. The drama, based on Gerbrand Bakker?s novel, is dedicated to leading man Jeroen Willems, who suddenly passed away this year.
