The Inheritors Movie Review

In 1930s rural Austria, a crazy old peasant woman kills the farmer who runs the estate on which she works. The misanthropic farmer leaves the land to the peasants on his staff just out of spite for humanity, and sparks fly among the dim-witted "one-seventh farmers" and their greedy next-door neighbor, culminating in one tragedy after another. A not entirely successful trip from comedy to drama, though the first half is a far more interesting picture.

Think of it as Animal Farm without the animals. Which I guess just makes it Farm.

Aka Die Siebtelbauern.
