When Tomatoes Met Wagner
In a small rural Greek village, two cousins run an organic farm, growing tomatoes with the help of some hard-working old ladies – and classical music blasted across the fields. Little jars of tomato paste, each requiring more than a kilo of fruit, and layered antipasto savoury snacks are their hallmarks. With no machines for mass production, only weathered hands to crank the honey, slice the tomatoes, and apply each label one by one. They’re clearly dedicated, but hampered by marketing acumen. With its sunny approach that’s as laid-back and no-frills as the villagers themselves, this is a wonderfully endearing and optimistic documentary.
