Eifersüchteleien herrschen in der Dorfgemeinschaft. Doch im Kampf gegen eine Naturkatastrophe halten die Bewohner zusammen. - Spannender Film nach einem Roman von Ludwig Ganghofer. 

High up in the mountains, a peasant family drags themselves through the towering granite blocks with all their possessions to make a new home for themselves.  The mountains, however, have no interest in seeing them make a home up there:  for months, huge boulders have been crashing down around them; trees have been falling on the walls of their new home and collapsing it ... and more than one time.  Do they get the hint and move?  Hell, no!  Defying nature -- and the chances of ever getting a home insurance policy at any kind of a reasonable rate -- they fight nature and common sense and go on building their new home among the stones and trees of the hostile mountains.  Oh, and did I mention the landslides and mini-earthquakes that threaten their existence from time to time.  A film that will have you shaking your head in astonished admiration and wonder at what kind of morons these peasants are! 

THERE IS A NEWSREEL PREVIEW BEFORE THE FILM, JUST AS GERMAN AUDIENCES MIGHT HAVE SEEN WHEN THE MOVIE WAS FIRST SHOWN (except this newsreel may not be contemporary to when the film was released).

DVD-R IS IN GERMAN WITH NO SUBTITLES (except for the Newsreel). APPROX. 107 MINS. COMBINED TOTAL. WORN FILM QUALITY OVERALL, BUT WATCHABLE.
