“Almost half a million widows over the age of 65 live among us. The majority of them spend the last years of their lives in the countryside. Their husbands died, children moved out and they are left alone with their work and daily troubles. Alone with their fortunes, faith, memories of happy times and hardship. Filled with wisdom and humility of old age and simplicity of nature, that has surrounded them their whole life.” commentary from the movie Respice finem
