Winter Silence

Synopsis: A man, a woman and their four daughters live in a log cabin in a snowed-in village that lies jammed between high rocky mountains. The catholic belief and strong belief in sagas has a great influence on their daily lives. After an accident whereby the man dies, the woman and their adult daughters are left behind in mourning. At that moment the atmosphere of the film becomes dreamy. A sort of winter sleep. Deermen appear. They are figures who determine the duration of the mourning period. The widow wants to be remarried for quite some time, because a life in the mountains is too difficult for a woman alone with four daughters. The deermen have no intention to end the mourning period, as they have a secret affair with her daughters. And as soon as they would "release" the widow, would the daughters be allowed to marry. Separate from the other characters is an 11 year old girl. She symbolizes innocence. The girl lies asleep in a simple room. A snow owl sits in the open window and looks int

Foul demons of the earth and air

From this their wonted haunt exiled

Shall flee before thy presence fair.

We bow us to our lot of care

Beneath thy guidance reconciled

Hear for a maid a maiden's prayer

And for a father hear a child!

Father!

Father!

Father!

We have to get help.

Father has fallen down

by the Gloria rock.

Help!

Help!

I confess to almighty God and

to you my brothers and sisters...

...that I have failed to do good,

and have done wrong.

I have sinned in my thoughts,

my words and my deeds.

My thoughts,

my words and my deeds.

My thoughts, my thoughts,

my words and my deeds.

Through my fault, through my fault...

...through my most grievous fault.

I confess to almighty God and

to you, my brothers and sisters...

...that I have failed to do good,

and have done wrong.

I have sinned in my thoughts,

my words and my deeds.

My thoughts,

my words and my deeds.

My thoughts, my thoughts,

my words and my deeds.

Through my fault, through my fault...

...through my most grievous fault.

I took her dancing at the fair

And there tumbled from her hair

A rose so red.

I picked it up and gave her this

and asked for just a little kiss.

But no, oh no, she said

I never kiss, I never kiss.

When the dance had come to an end

She gave me both her hands

For me to hold.

In my arms she lay, so sweet

My heart did e'er so warmly beat

But no, oh no, she said

I never kiss, I never kiss.

But when the hour had come to part

She spoke directly from the heart

These lovely words:

You may, oh worthy cavalier

Steal now my virgin kisses dear.

Never let the memory fade

Of Marotshka, the Polish maid,

the Polish maid.

To Polish regions I did ride

To fetch Marotshka as my bride

I found her not.

I did look here, I did look there

But did not see her anywhere.

I ne'er discovered where she stayed

The Polish maid, the Polish maid.

Until I near an oak tree found

Her lifeless body on the ground

Oh heavy load.

And in her hand a note she had

With just some written lines that said:

In all my life I kissed once merely

And paid so dearly, paid so dearly.

Ave Maria

maiden mild

listen to a maiden's prayer

thou canst hear though from the wild

thou canst save amid despair

the murky cavern's heavy air

shall breathe of balm

if thou hast smiled

then, Maiden

hear a maiden's prayer

Mother, listen a suppliant child

Ave Maria

Hail Mary, full of grace...

...the Lord is with thee.

Blessed art thou amongst women,

and blessed is the fruit of thy womb...

...Jesus, your child

conceived by the Holy Spirit.

Pray for us sinners now...

...and at the hour of our death.

Amen.

Please, don't...

No mother, please, don't.

No, please, no!
