This film won the Cannes Grand Prize of the Jury, which means that it was considered to be the second best film of the year. It reminds me of the Italian film of many decades ago, “La Terra Trema.” What I remember of that film was the minute to minute details of the hard working lives of the fishermen. This time it is beekeepers. In Hollywood films, the workers would have nicely pressed and perfectly clean clothes. Well in this film, the characters wear rags, are sweaty, have ragged hair, and act just like people that put in 12 hour work days, seven days a week.

This arthouse piece from Italy has hits and misses, but is in general an enjoyable film to watch. In Italian and German with subtitles.
