Doctor Janez, a somewhat elderly lawyer, tired of urban life, pays a few week's visit to his relative Presecnik, a well-off farmer living in highland village. Farm life holds a great attraction for him, particularly because a deep and secret love develops between himself and Presecnik's daughter Meta. After a few serene and cheerful days spent on the farm, filled with pleasant labor and walks together with Meta in the unspoilt surroundings, he has to return to Ljubljana to resume his office work. But he cannot forget Meta and he makes his mind to buy a property not far from the Presecnik home and and to become a farmer. He does indeed buy a farm and sets out again to the Presecnik home to ask Meta to be his wife.Written by
An older, successful man from Ljubljana (Slovenia's capital) finds his true love in person of a young peasant girl while his is at vacations at the countryside.
Cvetje v jeseni (Blossoms in Autumn) is one of the most famous and probably also best Slovenian films ever made. It is about an aging successful man from Ljubljana, who finds his true love in person of young peasant girl while he spends his vacations at the countryside. Basically, it is an adaptation of a literary classic by Ivan Tavcar, Slovenian 19th century writer, but Kolopcic, a renowned director with apparent new wave inclinations, treats the material in a skillful, convincingly auteuristic manner.
