I like European cinema, I watch a lot of movies. This one is pure gold. You can watch this movie in several ways. Watch as an sociopsychological story about after war modernization in rural "forgotten" village in Europe. You can also watch in in several other ways, but I will not mention it not to spoil your discovery.
The director Witold Leszczynski (1933 -2007) was not famous, but he was in my opinion a genius.

Kaziuk, a stubborn peasant and his pregnant wife live in a backwood village, unaffected by the civilization. The village is once visited by a couple of wanderers, and strange things start to happen afterward. A new schoolteacher is sent to the area. She stirs erotic fantasies in Kaziuk. In a stir of frustration Kaziuk cuts down a family tree - a sacrilegious act in the eyes of his family. Going a step further and using a scythe for cutting the rye instead of a sickle brings the whole village against him.
