Behind the Dutch Facade

by Richard Wijckmans

A Dutch social worker seeks a new life as a goat farmer in France. This is the story of his struggle to achieve that. We see his battles against the authorities, his domestic farming difficulties and the volatile relationship with his partner. This is an interesting view of democracy and modern Europe.

Our entire lives were concentrated on France and getting there. We were like robots: all what we did was focus on this, even dream about it.
