Weiberwirtschaft

Weiberwirtschaft

DDR 1983/1984, Spielfilm

Inhalt


Shortly after the end of World War II, young carpenter Achim is sent to a remote farm to do some repair work. Three women from different generations administer the farm on their own: Daughter, mother, and grandmother. There are no men around since grandmother Hanna has lost her husband in World War I, and mother Gertrud′s husband died in World War II. Although daughter Heidi is old enough to marry, she is neither engaged nor married. Thus, hardworking, yet shy Achim is the only man around. The three women look after him, pamper him, and make it perfectly clear that they would like Achim to stay around even after the repair work is done. But Achim feels that their feelings for him are forced – the mother tries to seduce him, while the grandmother tries to couple him with her granddaughter – and is repelled by their attempts. As soon as he has done the repair work, Achim leaves the farm.
