    • Synopsis
    • The authors of the movie decided to chose seven of the ballads and make them a film poetry of a very
      new style. It is a composition of photography, music and a fascinating landscape and architecture.
      • „Bouquet“ tells a story about little orphans crying for their mother.
      • „The Waterman“ is a fascinating slightly horror story about a waterman who falls in love with a
      country girl. Most of the scenes are shot really in the water and make this very authentic.
      • „The Noon Witch“ is narrating about a desperate, tired mother and a greedy old noon witch.
      • „Wedding Shirts“ is a romantic horror played between our world and the world of the dead.
      • „The Golden Spinning“ Wheel is a colourful story about the confusing similarity of faces when characters
      are totally different.
      • „The Daughter’s Curse“is in fact an unfortunate misunderstanding between two different generations.
      • „Christmas Eve“ is closing the circle of a human life in the person of an old woman who accepts her
      death as a natural ending of her life.
